   The engineers who integrated lcms and pisces rendering library
   may pitch in (they're cc-ed), I know of a few bugs for lcms:

   I believe there are some performance issues as well but I couldn't
   find the bug ids.

   Also, I know that pisces has some quality issues especially
   with large coordinate handling. Performance as well but I couldn't
   find any filed bugs.
