FS#558 - Investigate new Sinfonia S3 (CHC-S2245) and Kodak 6900

Replacement for the S2145, it's main fature is high capacity (900 print) media.

Initial investigation implies it may require host-side image processing, not unlike the S6145.

The Kodak 6900 is actually CHC-S2245-6A

Decoded the intermediate windows spool file format, which is similar to other models (same header format, but rearranged) No idea about the details of the actual printer communication, and no further info about actual printer communication. Windows driver includes 'S2245ImageProcess.dll' which implies it needs host-side processing. I really don't want to go through this yet again..

Interesting tidbit -- 'S2245ImageProcess.dll' is bit-for-bit identical to the S6145 DLL. So there's a very good chance that this can bolt onto the existing S6145 backend with minimal effort! I will still need appropriate access to one of these things first..
