Today's discovery is that Remote Desktop can do printer redirection. Setting it up is slightly complicated since just enabling printer sharing on the client isn't quite enough - you also have to have previously installed the printer driver on the computer you're connecting to (unlike normal printer sharing, remote desktop doesn't seem to be able to download the driver automatically from the computer with the printer), but once installed it just works.
