The results from this are very nice. It would be invaluable for indexed
image based web work (such as PNGs and GIFs), because size *does*
matter...  (especially for those using conventional modems). Having better
color matching means that Gimp would have the ability to reduce the color
palette down to even less colors; in turn, reducing the file size by a
noticeable amount.
