A lot. It depends on the server, and xfree does not do much. Basically, the
best you can do is to code it in your application.

However, you can calibrate your card/monitor combination and tell your
X-server about it, after which applications can query all neceessary
parameters (and do calulcations) with Xcms. Gimp does not implement this

adjustment in 3.x? ;)

You can set them using properties on the root window, which Xcms
uses. Look for Xcms and XDCCC.

Poissible, yes, but not in practice (I don't know of any programs that
evaluate icc profiles, and no useful program that evaluates these).
