HP LaserJet M1120 is working with foo2zjs

Hello!
Just days before someone noticed, that the LJ M1120 is supported by foo2xqx, I tried out foo2zjs and got my M1120 to print with the LJ 1020 foo2zjs-Driver.
The only thing I had to do was to set down the resolution to 600x600 DPI to get better printing-results.

Should I change to foo2xqx now or should I stay with foo2zjs? Any other "features"? Better support?

Okay... I've changed to foo2xqx and now the printer-output looks slightly different.
With foo2zjs, the "Color Wheel" and the "Gray Ramp" of the CUPS Printer Test Page had a nice, smooth gradient.
Now with foo2xqx the gradient isn't that smooth anymore.
Here are two Images:
1. foo2zjs:


2. foo2xqx:


Settings are the same: 600x600 DPI

        * Add: manual pages for arm2hpdl, usb_printerid
        * Modify: foo2xqx-wrapper to put in WTS.

Sorry... Still the same... But thank you very much for this driver anyway :)
It's working great!

But another question now:
Why do you think that foo2xqx is "better" for me?
Don't misunderstand me... I believe you ;)
I only want to understand why. Better Performance? Better compatibility? Something else?

Sorry... Still no difference... But maybe I found something...
These lines are in foo2zjs-wrapper but not in foo2xqx-wrapper:
        if [ "$QUALITY" = wts ]; then
            cat >> $ICCTMP.usecie.ps <<-EOF
                << /UseWTS true >> setuserparams
                <<
                    /AccurateScreens true
                    /HalftoneType 1
                    /HalftoneName (Round Dot Screen) cvn
                    /SpotFunction { 180 mul cos exch 180 mul cos add 2 div}
                    /Frequency 137
                    /Angle 37
                >> sethalftone
                EOF
        fi

EDIT: Okay... I modiefied the wrapper myself and it didn't improve anything :(

Any news? Or should I/we continue in the foo2xqx-forum?

And like I already asked:
You say that I should use foo2xqx, fine. But it would be nice to know why...
What is different/better in foo2xqx?
