I'm trying to understand how Argyll is similar. As far as I can see, the
gamut expansation operation for any given source colour should be in
proportion to how much wider the destination profile's gamut is. 
Taking cyans, for example, the operation should greatly expand the cyans of
an sRGB source for a typical inkjet destination. And for blues, it should 
in fact contract the gamut, because the destination gamut is smaller.
Can Argyll really do this "morphing" of the gamut in this fashion?
