    I am currently working on (well, more so when I have some free time)
    libieee1284, which is a user-space library for doing this kind of
    stuff. If /dev/parport is available it uses it.

    <URL:> has CVS only at the
    moment. I need to write a todo list and give it a better interface.

    You are more than welcome to join the effort. :-)
