I didn't know that (obviously ;)). It's nice, but I've got a hunch
that such thing should be placed "lower" than DM. My ideal would be
even something placed deeper than "display manager"/X.org.
I'd love to e.g. make my X theme using HSV or Lab color tuples. Also,
such thing could take color management and color model support
entirely of off applications shoulders.
