So we have to admire Apple, Adobe and so on for getting this stuff done 
and play with cairo in a toy world? Cairo would loose many use cases 
if it completely rejects the idea of colour management. Most backends 
are currently unuseable for CM work. But the trent to CM is very obvious 
in graphic applications and on linux.
