[argyllcms] Possible? Do the equivalent of X-Rite's MeasureTool + Comparing? If so, De2k for 'categories' of patches?

ArgyllCms 1.6.1 semi-newbie. Sorry if something like the following has been asked before.


Is it currently possible to use ArgyllCms to accomplish some or much of the capabilities of X-Rite’s MeasureTool + Comparing?

If so, is it possible to get the overall DE2k of a group of patches?

If so, is it possible to also get break-outs by categories of patches, like
* Gray patches (mid-grays should have relatively low DE2k for good profile)
* White patch (expected to have relatively high DE2k)
* Black patch, (high DE2k expected, especially for non-glossy papers)
* Flesh-Tone patches (should have relatively low DE2k for good profile)
* within-sRGB-gamut patches (should have relatively low De2k)
* within gamut of superb 12-ink printer with very high gamut volume
* out-of-Adobe98-gamut patches (expected to have relatively high DE2k)
etc.

I’ve noticed that colprof has some summary stats at the end, as part of the “Profile Check”, but I’m unclear how to interpret those values.

Are you familiar with the ArcCalibrator freeware .jsx FOSS script developed by Thomas Fors and heavily tweaked by Rags Gardner?

It’s obsolete and unmaintained now. Doesn’t work with PV2012. It was very slow for even 24 to 48+ patches, and it's approach to modify ACR sliders a'la Datacolor's SyperCheckr has problems.

It’s ColorFunctionsLib.jsxinc had C-like .jsx routines to determine whether a patch was predominantly Red, Green, or Blue. Also, it used a bit-map approach to identify which patches were White, Black, and different Gray patches. A similar approach could possibly have a bit-map or automated detection for flesh patches, o-o-g, within gamut, etc.

Or not?
