Maybe.  Probably.

But I think it's time for me a a user to stop telling developers 
what I need and to start asking what you need to make that 
happen.

I think it's time to stop looking at this from the position of 
nebulous wants and desires and to start looking at the end 
product and asking what restrictions need to be placed on its 
development.  Where does it connect to the rest of the program? 
How does it interact with the rest of the program?  When we know 
that, we'll be able to start figuring out how best to implememt it.

I'm not asking for support.  I'm just asking you what the shape 
of the hole is that the CMYK peg must fit into.

I'm not really suggesting that I tackle the problem, but in my 
experience, the first response to ``You should have feature X'' 
is usually ``You forgot to attach the patch.''  Talk is cheap, 
and somebody needs to offer to help.
