FS#520 - Investigate Sony UP-CR20L aka DNP SL-20

Sony sold their printer line to DNP, which rebranded these two models.

Investigate their Spool format, and find out if they need an intelligent backend.

CR10L uses a spool format similar to the UP-DR150/200. The actual contents of the file are different, but it appears as if the existing backend should work.

CR20L uses a totally different file format than the CR10L, 'PJL' with a 'SONY-PDL-DS2' sub-language. (PJL is an HP printer thing)

Haven't investigated the SL-10/20, but I can't imagine DNP rewriting the firmware to use a different command language.

Theoretically, the backend is now extended to handle the CR10L.

Still need to update the gutenprint code.
