FS#552 - Write network backend for CPnP printers

The 'selphy_go' code showed how to detect CPnP models and send JPGs over to be printed..

Using the CP900, I discovered how to send raw YMC data over CPnP.  This means we can write a native CPnP CUPS+Gutenprint backend for that model.

Unfortunately we won't know if the newer selphyneo models support non-jpeg CPnP printing -- The Windows driver uses WSA/WSD and Macs appear to use AirPrint.  The only way to find out is to write it first.

Just to further elaborate -- This is a considerable amount of effort, and we won't know if it will function on the selphyneo family (CP820/CP910/CP1000/CP1200) until we're fairly far along.
