Our printing is tied to our canvas, which is what our on-screen
representation uses.

It is not impossible to separate them, but we have otherwise been
working towards keeping on-screen rendering and print rendering as
identical as possible.

(Only exceptions being things which don't render to print, such as
selection colours or grab handles).

Sounds like a whole host of code to make a marginally better view than
our current implementation. I can't even visualise what difference it
would make. Perhaps it would help pinpoint a small number of errors at
low zoom though. I'm afraid this might have to fall into the category of
"patches welcome".
