I found the reference I was looking for before, which is in the engine 
change log for Rev version 3.0:

Printing
~~~~~~~~
   Any printed content that can not be rendered by the native OS 
printing system is now rasterized at a higher resolution before being 
sent to the printer as a bitmap. This means that any printouts 
containing gradients, transparency or scaled images look much better.


So apparently it would have been even worse before...and it's dependent 
on the OS print drivers.
