If someone is working on a pipe command, is it possible to include a "Pipe
formatted document" command as well.

Then it will be easier to use a print (or filter command) on a
Links-rendered view of HTML docs, e.g.

	<Links formatted document> | tr "\\000" "\t" | enscript -fCourier8

or more simply, 

	<Links formatted document> | lpr

It would be much appreciated ...
