Anyone know of a free default-printer selector app?

i think this is something that can be implemented in coding snacks if it doesnt already exist.

a tray based tool that shows you all your printers in a menu and lets you change new default printer.

shareware to do this:

so my question is, is there a freeware to do this already? if not i'll write it.

I've seen at least two of them.  At least one of those two is defunct.  That one was called "SetPrinter", and I have version 2.0 of it for safekeeping.  (I have attached it here.)

I'll see if I can find the other one.

Edit:  Oops, I think that ActivePrinter may have been the other one I've seen, which I assumed would be free, because it seems like such a small, lame, restricted, specialty, ah-what-the-hell-it-took-me-two-hours-to-write-so-why-be-a-dick-and-ask-$15-for-it kind of application.
