[argyllcms] dispcal output profile as preconditioning profile for targen

I was fiddling a bit with Argyll (1.1.0_rc2) once more, with the
following command lines:

dispcal -v -m -o ${FILENAME}_tmp.icc -q m -y l -g 2.2 -f 1 ${FILENAME}
argyll-targen -v -d 3 -G -e 8 -s 16 -g 16 -f 324 -I -A 1.0 -c
dispread -v -y l -k ${FILENAME}.cal ${FILENAME}
colprof -v -D "Test" -q m -a s ${FILENAME}

The concept is to use the dispcal output profile as a source for
preconditioning the patch generation with targen. This makes in all
honesty no visually detectable difference.

This does beg the following question... Does preconditioning targen
have any (theoretical) merit (as it seemed like a good idea)? Or does
it only show with low patch counts?
