Color management is supposed to be in the 2.4 release so it should be
finished before the SoC starts.

That sounds like a reasonable project to me.

We definitely want this to happen right after 2.4. I am not sure if it
makes sense to declare an absolut must-have as a SoC project. IMO We
should rather try to come up with some tasks that would be nice to
have but that we can easily live without.

Fine with me.

I don't think we will need this when we are done with the changes to
the window handling that have been started in CVS. It also doesn't fit
into the long-term plan. We could however try to make window handling
a SoC project but I am not sure how well suited that would be.
