Has anyone had any luck getting CUPS to talk to an Epson Workforce 600 
printer?  I got pipslite and eklite.ppd extracted (and modified it to 
use Letter instead of A4) but I can't seem to get CUPS to talk 
succesfully with the printer.  The printer configuration under Gnome 
widget does show that CUPS detected something (pipslite:...) but when I 
try to use it I get a wrapper error.  The wrapper itself is in binary so 
there's not much I can make of it.  This was done with the Workforce600 
in wireless mode.

I've had no luck with various combinations so far with direct ethernet, 
wireless ethernet, http:, ipp:, lpd, socket: attempts.
