That's good. Some other solutions might not work that way, so clarifying this point they way we just did is probably a Good Thing. I was also thinking about CMYKOG, and I may have been a little glib in my dismissal of it. CMYKOG is essentially a special type of 6-color, which is not patent-encumbered, to the best of my knowledge. There's certainly no reason why the user can't have Hexachrome(R) if they install proper add-ons, but it couldn't ship with GIMP as long as it has a libre license. After all, there's a way to get PMS to work with Scribus (and I believe you can use this to get approximations in GIMP as well): <http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/Scribus_and_Pantone_colors> -- | Andrew A.
