FS#556 - status queries and flow control

It would be really nice if we could figure out how to query the UP-DR200's printer status, media counts, flow control, etc etc.

Figured out how to check printer status and whatnot with the UP-D895/897 models, and based on sniffs that work carries over to the UP-DR series. I don't know how to query media type/count on the UP-DR series.

Status query tested on UP-CR10L, so we can detect busy/idle and error conditions. Do not know how to query media type/status, counters, firmware revision, and so forth.

UPDNeo models use a very different query mechanism; that seems to be reasonably well supported now.

New code has a problem on the UP-DR200 due to an unknown status code, but printer does work!

CR10L and CX1 support brought with it the ability to query media and status, though most codes are unknown.  CX1 Windows driver provides a way to query printer counters, but that will require sniffs.
