The GIMP image editor uses which supports tons of formats and supports color spaces, ICC profiles, etc.

I would also prefer to keep colorsys simple and so not support ICC profiles for example.

YUV is a common color encoding system. It's used by the JPEG image format and MPEG video format for example.

In terms of complexity and maintenance burden, supporting YUV (PR 29512) sounds reasonable me.

If colorsys is limited to RGB/HLS/HSV, I'm not sure if it is useful. Nowadays, there are more color formats which are getting popular. If they are not supported, maybe it's better to just remove the module. I don't know.

Well, I don't have a strong opinion on adding YUV support or not.
