I noticed that this is because it launches the LayoutTestHelper tool unconditionally, and in addition to changing the color profile on Mac, it also changes font smoothing settings on Windows. Does anyone know whether this work is required when running non-pixel tests? If not, I'd like to change NRWT to only launch LayoutTestHelper in pixel mode, and perhaps also rename LayoutTestHelper to PixelTestHelper.

I went ahead assumed that this tool was never necessary for non-pixel tests, if I'm wrong, please comment here: <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=81729>
