I recognize that Gimp is web-centric, and that enhanced 
prepress capabilities are somewhere in the future. However 
some of us do use Gimp for images ending up on the printed 
page. And critics of Gimp and Open Source software in 
general jump on prepress issues as a point of criticism. 

In addition to CMYK the issue of ICC color profiles has been 
raised.  Photoshop offers several profiles for e.g., coated 
paper, uncoated paper and so on. It is clumsy to develop in 
Gimp, and then transfer to Photoshop just for profiling. 
What are the prospects of doing something in this area? Is 
any of it on the agenda?
