Do you have a reference to these discussions?  It seems like X
*should*, accepting that it may be difficult.

I was just going to say here that putting it in GTK could also 'fix'
the color selector issues; let me just emphasize that point here.

On a more philosophical note, how does one represent a color that does
not exist on a display but does on an output device?  Do we make the
assumption that the display always has the widest gamut?  (I.e: GIMP
will never run on a mono/CGA device and print to a CMYK printer.)  Is
that a concern?
