Thank you both, Alessandro and Jordan.

I won't be able to get an off-the-shelf colour slide developing kit easily (they only sell Foma's B&W reversal kit here) but I can mix one (providing I'll get all the chemicals). Your answer put me on the ground, though, and I'd like to thank you for 'warning' me.

Maybe I should reconsider it and resort to cross-processing instead.
