Too bad it is now very difficult to me to change it in lcms, since older
versions would still use such name and there are plenty of RPM around
out of my control. Changing the name would break yet existing  scripts
and would violate one of the basic premises of lcms -- backwards
compatibility :(

My plan for newer versions is to use a different name 'lcmsicclink' for
example, and then add a symbolic link icclink -> lcmsicclink. That would
make possible to have both Argyll and lcms installed at same time, with
the only drawback of bogus 'icclink' binary target.

I keep thinking about this, but haven't struck on a good alternative.
Simple things like "plink" etc. are already widely used for other tools.
"argylllink" is too long winded, "agllink" is too cryptic. Got any
suggestions ? (I'd want to change "profile" as well, as it clashes with
some system tools). Besides, I got to "icclink" first! :-)

I'm prepared to distribute it, but I'm not prepared to maintain it.
