I'll answer the autotools part i nmore details when I wake up tomorrow. 
In short I agree with what you say, and that there needs to be a 
compelling reason, and a patch is better. But this is a future goals 
thread where patches are not yet ready for most of the topics mentioned.
Maybe this is useful read

They have a unified print dialog across apps, something that was done 
(less well) by lignomeprint{,ui} so far but not many apps used that.
They do not really have things which a printer config app would need 
(printer discovery, addition, removal). IIRC there is API related to job 
handling but not sure if it covers all that is needed.
