Great idea (besides using autoit instead of autohotkey -- just kiddin'
:-) -- some sort of Vi vs. Emacs war which of course both are great
tools). This would also be useful to allow laboratory instruments
(PR-650, CS-2000 and the like) to be used for the calibration of the
display. Currently it's not that easy to test if such a device will
yield "better" (whatever that means and must be defined before hand)
calibration results then a desktop device.

A "dummy" demo device just generating some more or less meaningful
typical numbers is useful to test the application itself.

I'm not sure if you suggest to enter each color one after the other?
If no interative calibration process is used then a list of
measurement data will be sufficient.
