I apparently misinterpeted what I had read earlier. So I look
forward to more facilities in support of DTP including CMYK
output and CMYK visibility onscreen, even if the actual work is
done in RGB. 

In this context PostScript and evenually PDF output is part of
the puzzle too. I use TeX and pdftex won't take a TIFF file as
input. Apparently there are too many variants. 

In the meantime I will try to locate the PostScript output code
(again) and try to clean it up a bit, as we discussed many moons

Thanks for your continued efforts.
