Hopefully yes, I'm on holidays for a few weeks :)

But the PDF ICC issue is hard for me to check, since I don't have an
Acrobat 6.0 license.

Images also might prove to be rather more complicated, I'm not sure yet.

I think that you'd be better off leaving it out of 1.2.x, and implement
the ideas properly in 1.3. Some things are a bit of a kludge in order to
avoid having to change too many files.

What is the status of 1.3? Is source available? How different is it /will it
be from 1.2.x?
