I understand, thanks for explaining.

Can you give a rough estimate of when a color managed picking system 
will be integrated into GIMP ? I've only recently "discovered" the LCH 
color space / color selection and I think it's a great system. I know I 
could for now simply use the current available color selection module 
(which from what I see is "just" a graphic interface to do LCH->RGB24 
color conversions, so it's a sort of "fake" LCH), but it's just my 

Let me guess: this will happen when GEGL will be fully integrated into 
GIMP, right (also allowing higher color bit depths which if I'm not 
wrong the LCH color space needs) ? Then that would be in GIMP 2.10 or 
even later, I think.
