The display filter is probably the most difficult part of this to implement
and it is close as it only needs to start accessing the embedded profiles.
The filter itself is relatively trivial - the existing proof filter
needs only minimal changes to do the job.
What will be trickier is developing profile- and transform-caching

possible to fetch a reference to the image from within the filter.
That's left to the print plug-ins but shouldn't be hard to add.
Indeed. Once there's an infrastructure for plugins to query the GIMP
for the profiles to be used for a particular task, the rest becomes
