FS#622 - Support Windows Spool format for DNP printers

Gutenprint generates a spool file of native printer commands. The windows drivers use an intermediate format instead. To support folks printing from windows, the backend should support the windows spool format.

This will have to cover the RX1[HS], DS40, DS80, DS80DX, DS620, DS820.

Reason for closing:  Implemented
Additional comments about closing:  Just needs to be tested on DS620 and DS820, and we're done.

Decoded spool format for the RX1. Not all printer functionality is exposed, but it should be sufficient. Still need to add it to the backend before I can move onto the next one.

RX1 support fully implemented. Close (but not identical to) the CW-01 format. I'll try to do DS40 & DS80 next.

DS40 and DS80 are essentially the same. DS80DX, DS620, DS820 remaining.

DS80DX seems to use the same format, but the windows driver keels over. DS620 and DS820 need to be done still, but I'm going to assume they're the same. Will validate later.

Success printing on the RX1! So the approach is sound.

DS620 implemented.
