Thanks for all the input. I'm decided that I don't yet really
understand Color Management enough to do this properly - so I'll just
stick with 'it looks good enough' rather than getting every element of
the chain scientifically correct.
It seems that there are a number of projects that relate to this issue,
and I am in the process of researching them (I suspect this will lead to
a PhD in Color Terminology first though).
The gimp-print-devel list is interesting, and 'I am Not Alone!'.
There is more development going on ICC-based profiles and profiling.
When I find the HowTo, or if I don't, when I've written it, I'll report
I'm anonymous. So you can't email me. Sorry about this, but the spam
has just gotten too bad. I monitor this list as a newsgroup though.
