Does terminator support a customised terminal printing?

Asked by MoMaT on 2009-03-16

The terminal printing is a feature that allows local printing of the content send to the terminal between special printer on/off control characters. This content is not displayed but by default redirected to a local printer. Now I'm interesting is using this mechanism to notify myself about changes in the irssi session through ssh as described here:
http://jaredquinn.info/it-related/technical/unix/2007.09.25/libnotify-with-irssi-over-ssh/

To do that I also need a way to set up a printing command to which the "printed content" would be piped. In xterm this can be set using .Xdefaults/.Xresources like this:
*XTerm*printerCommand: /usr/bin/my_printer_command

Is there a way to use set this command and use terminal printing in terminator?

I've just learned that all terminal emulators based on the GNOME VTE do not support terminal printing. The handlers for ANSI Media Copy control characters are not implemented in VTE and it is not possible to start/stop the relay to printer.

The only terminal emulators I've found to be implementing it are xterm and (u)rxvt.
