[Bf-committers] lcms?

What's currently in svn is not really a functional implementation of
anything - it was a very early work-in-progress experiment committed
but ifdefed out, as something for coders to play with. This was before
the colour management feature currently in 2.5 was implemented, as a
first stage managing the difference of linear and gamma corrected
(srgb) colour spaces.

Doing a second phase of continuing this to support other profiles than
linear rgb/srgb would be very good, but it's a big complex job, and
lcms1 isn't sufficient for our needs here. lcms2 looks like it should
be, but there's still a lot of work involved to figure out how best to
go about it, and then do it - it has wide ranging implications for
various areas of blender. Anyway, as mentioned before, the existing
code that's in svn does none of this, and should be removed for now.
