No, as this doesn't belong to the individual software, but to your
operating system's printing engine.
If you're using linux or Mac, then you're using cups and cups has this
functionality built-in.
You need of course configure the system with the printer accordingly
(i.e. open your firewall accordingly, and allow it to accept
print-jobs via the network). Windows has at least the client-part
(i.e. print to a network-connected-printer somehwere), but not sure
how much effort it would be to make it accept print-jobs from outside-
but then again you can share printers/files & folders in your local
network, sharing it to the internet is not really any different.

or would you rely on another app to do this? I know that this would
be a feature that would not be put in right off the bat. but its kinda cool
to think about.

See above - it is at the printing-level, not at the
application-that-wants-to-print-level where this has to be setup. And
to my knowledge, all current operating systems support this already,
some easier, some a less harder to configure accordingly.
