Dilemma - since at 1036 we are throwing an Exception and the comment at 970-ish suggests
the author was intending to do what s/he did at 1036 but never got around to it.
I think I'd be more inclined to make the code at 970 like that at 1036.
(1) then the comment surely can go
(2) I don't know why at 1034 you changed from PrinterIOException to PrinterException.
And whilst great you are fixing up this code, we are but a small fraction of the world's code
that use java.io and I wonder if this is worth the compatibility risk ?
