If this keeps up, maybe I should just patch the program to do this
for uncompressed DNG and then it can be used by everybody just by
converting their raws to DNG using the Adobe utility.

Gordon, that's a really neat idea with DNG. I was looking to write my own program for Canon CR2 files but DNG thing is certainly better. I guess a lot of dcraw.c code can be reused (with Dave's permission of course).

The idea of RAW not being WB neutral really bothers me about K10D. With my KM A2 and Rebel XT I always shoot RAW and do it on assumption of neutrality to WB. So far all my superficial tests show that CR2 files are WB neutral.

This WB thing is a real bummer and even made me question my decision to go with K10D. I'm beginning to wonder what else K10D RAW data is sensitive to? Tone curve (Natural, Bright), saturation and contrast?
