Well kcmcolord does a slightly different (more complete in a way) thing 
and, unlike the kwin color correction, works independently from the 
window manager. Having said that, I'd like to see colord-kde moved into 
plasma-desktop, together with other kcms and kgamma possibly too, to act 
as a fallback to it.
