printing to an AirPrint printer from Android-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

Has anyone heard of anyone having any success implementing Apple’s new AirPrint protocol on Android?

From various descriptions, it appears to be a fairly simple protocol employing Internet Printing Protocol, bonjour and PDF:

These technologies all appear to be possible to implement on Android, but I’m wondering if there are any likely stumbling blocks?

(I realise AirPrint only works with a handful of printers just now, and only 11 HPs as listed on Apple’s airprint page, but it is presumably only a matter of time before it becomes much more widespread.)

Thanks!
