I'm atm. not even sure about that.

I might be utterly wrong, but my impression is that the xvidmode extension  
can correct screens (eg. xcalib loads icc profiles), so a screen wide  
color correcting compositor would be only required to fix multiscreen (not  
multihead) setups which i frankly consider no case either, because a full  
correction would just mean to restrict the WG screen to the SRGB one  
(yesno?!), what doesn't much sound like a great achievement to me (and is  
simply no case in at least the professional context. You don't purchase  
_one_ WG screen to use it -restricted- alongside your SRGB screen, but  
just purchase two WG screens and give away the SRGB one to one of your  
employees at home or whatever)

Cheers,
Thomas
