We use a very simple XML file format listing the points, but it wont
make much sense for anyone else to try to interpret it, see below.

I think we already have (unannounced) support for reading UFRaw curve
files, but it's a two-fold problem.
1) Reading the data.
This is the easy part, importing curve points points isn't that hard.
2) Interpreting the data.
This is the hard part. There's multiple problems in replicating the
transform of the origin application. How should the points be
interpolated? Should the curve be applied to RGB-data? Seperate
luma-channel? Gamma-corrected? What should it affect? Just intensity?
Saturation..? and so on...
I'm sure all this could be embedded in the file format somehow. But to
answer your question, yes we are willing to support other formats, but I
see some big technical challenges in doing so.

I'm sorry to hear that :(
