Hi Everyone,

Just an FYI - I had a quick peep at the colour libraries provided with a 
certain DTP app today; they're basically just .ai EPSF files, containing 
CustomCMYKColor lines, in plaintext at that.

So there you have it; create an open, documented colour library format 
for Scribus, and proprietory colour libraries can be supported without 
any GPL issues, since they're just data, not code.  (Of course, 
arranging for such colour libraries to be created is another matter 
entirely :))

All the best,
Alastair M. Robinson
