    If restore_state breaks printing then it's essentially useless. I think we
    need to discover what's going on, and either fix it so it works or remove it

    Worse than that, though, if restore_state is outlawed then drivers are just
    going to have to do something morally equivalent by hand.

    Can you remind me exactly what the symptoms of the breakage were?
