      No setup required; choice of PDF or print.

      I don't actually use Sheepshaver (or Basilisk II), but if I did actually use it, I suppose I would, in fact, take the trouble to set up one desktop printer to a real OS X print queue and another desktop printer to create PDFs - instead of using the current folder-watching method.

      But that would be solely for my own use. Having had some experience with creating printing setups for other users, I would *always* recommend creating the one that requires no setup at all.

      If you asking because you're working on your next Sheepshaver-setup version, I think your life will be made infinitely easier if you create a no-setup-required printing system by default, but add an explanation of how to set up the more complex but faster printing system.
