It's not a library. It's a set of tools, one of which provides a high
level session-specific DBus interface for "Get me the default RGB
profile" and that sort of thing. Allowing the user to convert from one
color space to another is just fine, but without tools to build a
workflow, it's at best a technical preview.

The UI on top of making things sane. Think of it as a helper on top of
argyllcms and lcms to actually get stuff done, rather than a rendering
or conversion library like lcms. I'm still continuing to add to the
toolkit to support ICC Profiles natively, but it'll have to wait until
the next GTK devel cycle now.  See for more
