Bug Description

After loging into XFCE environment, I see with "top" that /usr/share/system-config-printer/applet.py consumes 22MB of physical memory, just behind X.

Most of the time, the printer applet does nothing and thus wastes memory.

I think that this applet should be implemented with a compiler which create a binary executable instead of writing a python script or python byte code which will never reach the performances of a binary executable (speed and memory).
