The file will go to an offset print shop[1]. They demand PDF/X3 with ISOCoated
v2 profile which is what I will provide. I fiddled around with gs and
cinepaint to check CMYK values and it doesn't look good at all (there's
no black any more in the files converted using tifficc in final PDF/X3 output),
but I suppose this is some other glitch, maybe in gs (8.50) or in
cinepaint... which tool would allow me to check real CMYK values in PDF
