I seems to have been around for a while. See the function "ioFormPrint()" in the vm source for your platform to see if it actually does anything. The Mac version simply prints the arguments out:

int ioFormPrint(int bitsAddr, int width, int height, int depth, double hScale, double vScale, int landscapeFlag) {
	/* experimental: print a form with the given bitmap, width, height, and depth at
	   the given horizontal and vertical scales in the given orientation */
	printf("ioFormPrint width %d height %d depth %d hScale %f vScale %f landscapeFlag %d\n",
		width, height, depth, hScale, vScale, landscapeFlag);
	return true;
