Maybe I'm misunderstanding the discussion. Gimp asks when one opens an
image what one wants as the working colorspace. But we're talking
about operations *after* the image has been opened and the working
colorspace has been established.
Once I establish the colorspace, I expect all operations to be performed
in a manner which is consistent with and preserves that colorspace. If
some operation deals in some other space without my knowledge, that's
My apologies if I'm misunderstanding the discussion.
