New printing support now in development branch

People will be pleased to hear, hopefully as I am to announce, that we now have functional printing support in the development branch (on Win32 only). This includes the basic support in the GraphicsKit for drawing onto a PrintingContext, and a PrintSession which manages communicating with the underlying printing system. It uses a design similar to how printing is done on both Win32 and Mac OS X, since they are both reasonably similar.

Support is also present for the common print dialog as well.

A brief example demonstrating this can be found in vcf/examples/Printing.
