I could be wrong in saying this but 1337 is a developement branch. You

answer 1: If your printer has no problems opening a 1.4 pdf then go for
answer 2: ( a guess :) It may be that pdf 1.3 doesn't support
answer 3: Supply him with a copy of scribus :)

answer 4: Got no idea. I'll try to find out.....later
