I am not sure what Stefan added this for in the first place but we
will need a CMYK profile to be able to implement a useful CMYK color
selector. We already have such a color selector but at the moment it
uses a rather naive approach of converting between CMYK and RGB.

We will let the print plug-in deal with this. Ideally the print
plug-in would not be part of GIMP. Instead give the user the choice to
pick his/her preferred print plug-in.
