Okay, after we're done with Photoshop stuff [1], next will be .indd.
In the mean time, if you are interested, spec on Photoshop's gradients
is pretty complete [2], just a couple of not quite important entries
are not figured out.

[1] I guess we could additionally r-e Transfer Function (ATF) files
that are basically duotone curves that should map to Scribus's
duo/tri/quadrotone effect nicely, but I really don't know if anyone
ever used those. It looks quite geeky even to me. Let me know.
