Ha, now you know how it is for the rest of the planet that uses A4,

Not to mention that they also always default to "US English" (even
though the rest of the world uses "UK English") and to some Timezone in USA.

Australia just could never break free of England, eh :) :) :)

I think there should be a "AUS English" option as well.

BTW, I have the same issue with the default paper always being Letter,
not A4 when I add a printer via CUPS. However, when I add a printer via
iPrint, it seems our company-wide printer setup sets the paper to
'default', which seems to be whatever the printer has as default. I
would think that would be the better default for newly added printers
than and specific choice.
