Well, adding a few gimprc options takes a couple of minutes only and
that should be all that is needed for now.

We already support tagging images with a profile. the suggested
parasite name for this is currently "icc-profile" and we should try to
keep this for backward compatibility. Of course we will need to define
some more parasites. Perhaps someone could sit down and propose the
parasites we will need for color management.

Does lcms provide an API for this?


PS: I wonder if we should add the separate plug-in to the GIMP tarball
    for GIMP 2.2. Would you like to see that happening?
