Well, I wrote a KisColorSpaceCMYK today that caches the cmyk->rgb values -- it 
doesn't work yet, or, at least, I suspect it doesn't because I cannot test it 
now. First I need to work along the path from the create image dialog to the 
actual call to KisColorSpaceCMYK::render. And I simply cannot imagine that I 
have gotten the loops & pointer arithmetic right in one go :-).
