[Gimp-developer] unusual (babl/babl/util.h) sRGB tone curve values

Working on getting high bit depth color conversion to work (still not
there yet!) has meant peeking into a lot of babl/gegl/gimp code. I
noticed unusual sRGB tone curve values in the functions
"linear_to_gamma_2_2" and "gamma_2_2_to_linear", defined in

The standard values are: 0.04045 and 0.0031308.
The util.h values are:   0.03928 and 0.0030402477.

I was curious as to whether/where/how gimp uses these functions (via
babl, it must be) and why nonstandard values are used.

If anyone is interested, I put together some test code to see what
difference the resulting values might be, given appropriate input
