I had assumed (perhaps wrongly) that "\special {color push}" would push the /current/  colour onto the stack, thus allowing one to subsequently execute \special {color cmyk . . . .} non-destructively because the previous colour had been saved on the stack and could therefore be restored ("popped") therefrom ...

Er, no.  I neither read nor write C.  I was looking for something written in English, or at least in a natural language.
