OK, thanks! While I cannot see a difference between (0,0,0) and
(0,0,0,1) in GSview, in Adobe Reader CMYK black is indeed greyish. The
attached code draws three shadings (from top to bottom):
* CMYK white to black,
* RGB black only,
* CMYK black (0,0,0,1) to 'registration black' (1,1,1,1).
On my non-calibrated screen, the difference between RGB black and CMYK
rich black disappears at a mix-in of around 30% colour components.
