I'm not sure "most of the time" is good enough.

With the (few) prints I've done with Archiva, 
I've seen an effect that I've never seen before,
in 2+ years of working with Epson inks.

I'm refering to what seems to be a variation
in ink-delivery, on one or more primary colors,
along the length of one print.

This is totally unacceptable.

If the ink "drops out" in the middle of a
print, the whole print is ruined.  That could
mean a couple of bucks worth of wasted ink
and paper, not to mention wasted time, 
wear-and-tear on the printer, and frustration
(leading to further wastage.)

And of course, every such "wasted" print brings
you that much closer to refill-time for that cartridge.

"Profiling" under such circumstances is hopeless.
