Ahh, I've misunderstood then, apologies. I thought there was something
like pstogutenprint. In this case, the way I see colord passing
options to Gutenprint would be by embedding elements from the profile
into the CUPS-raster data. This could probably just be hardcoded, so
that if a GUTENPRINT_PROFILE tag exists in the ICC profile then we
just squirt this xml file into the raster data somehow.
