rastertoptch sends unsupported command to PT-series printers

Bug Description

The rastertoptch filter includes a patch which sends the "ESC i A" (enable cutter) command to any printer which uses this filter. Sadly, this command is only supported on the QL series, so this patch has the effect of breaking printing on most of Brother's P-Touch line (the entire "PT" series).

The "ESC i A" command should only be sent to QL-series printers, and never to PT-series printers.
