Thank you very much!  I'll try it out.

Not even with the '-g -nns' options?  It would be really nice if
a GUI weren't required when it isn't used at all ...  Is there any
way to do just a conversion of the *.sla file to eps without a GUI?

Or could cups simply print *.sla files transparently like it can print,
for example, pdf and eps?  That would be all that's needed for
printing the labels.  If there was a filter cups could use to convert
*.sla into eps ...
