Well I've gone ahead and bought an OKI MC342DN, seems pretty good so
far.  It is rather large but it replaces two previous printers so
that's not too much of an issue.

The PPD driver seems to work exactly as it should and installation
under Windows 7 in VirtualBox was OK too.  There's nothing like HP's
bloatware on windows.
