from the libcoopgamma README:
        more importantly, all programs that
	use libcoopgamma can change the gamma ramps without
	overriding each others changes

Nice statement. However the chance is high, that your code path will be
ignored by other color configuration systems and thus the user
experience is irritating at best.

Maybe a configuration scheme is a better path then. Different programs
can then implement that scheme.

best regards

PS: please feel invited to the [OpenICC list][1] round the corner. I
really would like to see a convergence of desktop color configuration,
as it makes much sense to users. Redshift and friends are certainly welcome.
