i think the display stuff is important, but the print profile and
print settings registry issue needs resolving in synchrony; also we
need a czar to coordinate a color managed version of Cups that is
nicer than on the Mac. I suggest we appoint a color czar to validate
the system, and i propose Chris Murphy.
