Well, the answer is that "illumread -v" will indicate how much
UV it thinks is in the illuminant, in rather arbitrary units.

However, on checking exactly how this works, I'm distressed to discover
that illumread has not actually been working since ArgyllCMS V1.4.0,
when I re-factored some code to add support for M0/M1/M2 :-( :-( :-(.

I've updated <http://www.argyllcms.com/disptools_win32_v1.7beta.zip>
and also updated <http://www.argyllcms.com/Argyll_dev_src.zip>
if you would like to test with a working illumread.
