would using a different X server be an option?
If so, you can ask X to use an individual XF86Config, and you can add the
desired "Gamma" parameter to the "Monitor" section in that new

VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Sony GDM-17SE2T"
DisplaySize 337 270
HorizSync 30.0 - 85.0
VertRefresh 48.0 - 150.0
This guy here sort of puts it all in a script:
