This is the HL-3170cdw.  Printer works perfectly as a plain PostScript
device; or has a PPD for the similar 3070 which works fine:

There is a tiny wrapper program on the Brother site; it appears to only
add support for built-in fonts and set a few other PostScript options...
the installed bits (you can do this in a Docker container) are almost
entirely text and an easily viewed binary that seems just to add the
various strings.

I believe the current model, HL-L3270CDW, should work exactly the same,
although have not tested.
