The settings for Gutenprint are XML. Who is committing to maintain the
accessor code to extract the XML data from the profile and write it back

code. Is there an alternative maintainer?
Alternatively, Robert, can we commit to extracting a binary "ICC Profile"
blob from our XML, and writing it back in?
