xiccd is a simple bridge between colord and X. It does the following tasks:

 * Enumerates displays and register them in colord;
 * Creates default ICC profiles based on EDID data;
 * Applies ICC profiles provided by colord;
 * Maintains user's private ICC storage directory.

It does basically the same as gnome-settings-daemon color plugin or colord-kde
but does not depend on any particular desktop. It even doesn't depend on GTK so
it doesn't create useless GTK3 dependency if the desktop environment is GTK2-based
or vice versa. The primary goal of xiccd is providing color profile support for
desktop environments other than Gnome and KDE (Xfce, LXDE and probably others) that
do not support native color management yet. It is however not meant to be excuse
of not adding native color management to the session daemons of them.
