All I need to is to read a patch and make sure it prints out at that value.
What would be the difference between doing this with a grey scale patch
versus a color patch?  Is the issue with making the profile versus just
doing the reading?  Would 'colprof' reject the readings?  I know that the
QTR set up by Roy Harrington can prepare monochrome profiles via this same
approach.  I was hoping that I could do the same thing with Argyll rather
than purchasing another software package.

        sorry, but monochrome profiles are not currently supported
by Argyll. There's not a whole lot to doing so, but there's not
been much demand to complete the fiddly details.
