FWIF, from a user of Cairo - please for the love of all that is good -
keep it simple.  Cairo is complicated enough as it is. As a user, I'd
vote for keeping the crucial stuff in, the esoteric out and getting it
done. No one product can please everyone, nor should it. As it stands,
sRGB is exactly the right choice for most software development and it's
important to get it right (check!) and keep it right.

BTW, any news on the next release by any chance?
