Including lcms is a bit ugly, and there's a 1000% (estimating)
performance hit - but that might be something I'm doing wrong. I've
also failed to get a solid conversion with lcms so far - and unless I
missed it, there's no built-in CMYK profile in lcms so there's the
issue of what profile we'd have to use. "Naive" conversion is fast,
but obviously the colors are not accurate. I'm leaning toward just
throwing out the CMYK data for now, but I'm still fiddling with it.
