Maybe I misread here but "I would never ever think of blending each
colour space with each other." is exactly what is needed. You create
RGB image surface so you can bit blit it on the screen. And you paint
a CMYK picture over it.
If you are saying I first have to convert my CMYK to sRGB so I can
compose it over my image surface, how do I send that CMYK to PDF?
