Print the whole stage in AS3

I'm wanting to print the entire stage in actionscript 3 (flex.) But the PrintJob.addPage() function only takes a sprite argument, and the stage isn't a sprite. I can think of two solutions:
1.) Add a sprite as the root element of everything else - a big deal because I've got a lot of controls and functionality already.
2.) Create a temporary sprite for printing and all all the stage's children to it. Not sure if this would even work...

Is there a simple way to just print the entire stage? Surely this isn't an unusual scenario?

Add the stage to a sprite.
And put the whole thing in a try/catch block just in case:
try{
  var pj= new PrintJob()
  pj.start()
  var sp = new Sprite()
  sp.addChild(stage)
  pj.addPage(sp)
  pj.send()
} catch(e){
}
