The colord hook in CUPS is flawed in essential parts. That is not to be
called colour management at all.

Till Kampeter connected CUPS own profile selection mechanism with
Ghostscript for CUPS vendor side colour management. Edmund is now on the
path to make that path configurable for user selected profiles.
