      Description

      The appletviewer tool shipped with the Java 2 SDK use the "1.1" PrintJob
      API to implement the "Print" menu item.

      That API is constrained to use the "1.1" Graphics API, thus Java 2 applets
      which use and require the Graphics2D API will simply fail to print.

      We need to enhance the appletviewer tool to use the new API.
      This is a a long overdue trivial implementation change and low risk since
      the underlying implementation is identical, it is just routed by a more
      capable graphics path.
