Let me correct the last sentence.
The printed blue is obviously not cyan when printing 'rgb' and 'cmyk'

Somebody pointed out in an email that probably I am the only one who
is going to notice the difference, and he may be right.

My frustration is that the printer supports cyan as a base color.
I understand that rgb->cmyk involves lots of variables, and I'm hoping
that somebody will point me at one that allows me to tweak the output.
