a case can be made that spooled files and output queues are outdated
in the age of PDF and XML files. Users want to do a lot more with
their spooled output than just print it. PDF can be printed anywhere.
Users want to extract data from their reports and import into a
spreadsheet. XML is better for that purpose than i5/OS spooled files.
