Some ability to adjust color temperature would be useful on a lot of LCD monitors, particularly laptop displays with no buttons for changing hardware settings. XiG's proprietary X server let you adjust gamma with its Xsetup utility; maybe X.Org could introduce an "ColorTemp" line (or such) to xorg.conf, to fulfill the same purpose.
