Default Use of XRite Color Checking Target with Non-Adobe RAW Processing Software

XRite as a wonderfully worked out automatic color checker, using essentially a pocket version of the Gretag Macbeth color chart, (at least that's what it appears to be) and software. The latter locates the different color squares on the chart in the test picture taken at the time of the shoot and automatically generates a DNG correction file.

Xrite color Checker Passport™ tool found here.

This is used by Adobe Camera RAW, Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop and the color is automatically corrected to a daylight exposure. There are also gray squares with very slightly modified hues which by clicking on for WB, following use of XRites DNG correction file, allow reproducible "warming" or "cooling" to enable a consistent style, even with different make cameras in the same shoot.

Well, if it works, where's the problem? Well it's this, we don't always like to use Adobe products for every picture. Often we may choose Capture One, DXO, Lightzone, Apple's Aperture, Bibble and other equally capable RAW developers to kick open out digital workflow. So who has a workaround to manage to use the Passport™ with our favorite RAW processing software other than Adobe products?
