Hi all!

- The "Status" column in unclear. Which information does it show ?

It shows the status of the print queue:
check mark means: accepting print jobs and printing enabled
x means: either one of the two conditions or both are not in place.
Text was also the first idea we had, but it was too long and it required
horizontal scrolling which is really, really nasty.
So we decided to use icons.

Hmm, what about to show text only if the queue is either disabled or does
not accept jobs (and icon if enabled + accepting)? If one sees an 'x' icon,
he has really no clue what it means unless we have tool tips. Since in most
of the cases all queues are enabled and accepting jobs, it would show nasty
scrollbar only in rare cases.

Just keep in mind that the new UI supports icons all over the place, so let's
use this functionality!
