Unfortunately not, the first panel got smashed, hence why I know more
than I should about T61 screens.

My high level problem with this is we either have:

* Uncalibrated
* Calibrated

The first moment we start talking about "close enough" or "similar"
profiles we're telling the user they are in some kind of
quasi-calibrated state. Should the user trust that the red chair on
ebay is going the match the red carpet? Is a "close enough" profile
really better than uncalibrated?
