    1. AirPrint via any printer on a Mac on a
      shared network is possible TODAY with AirPrint Activator. It’s free or you can donate at netputing.com. There is even a version for windows apparently. (google it)

      After I downloaded and install the app on my Mac, I just had to uninstall an reinstall the printers. Now when my iOS devices share the network with my Mac, they see the available printers and voila!

      The Lion version is “in the works” accordin to their website.
