After reworking the custom option code to use the CustomKeyword
and ParamCustomKeyword, we can't (easily) support an arbitrary
array of values.  There *is* a "curve" type (does the traditional
gamma curve), but no lookup-table or piecewise-linear-curve.

We can come up with standard non-option attributes to support
arbitrary, multi-value curve data at the printing summit or off-line,
however we won't be supporting it as a normal PPD option.
