I agree, although Vuescan long pass currently seems to make some very simple
assumptions about the CCD charge bleeding characteristics.   At the very
least it would be nice not to have Vuescan include charge bled pixels in its
output as it currently does.  The examples I posted earlier provide enough
information for a more sophisticated approach.  Whether it's worth it or not
I dunno.

Clean filters, grain reduction filters or longpass algorithms are all great
ideas but none of them work perfectly so I guess we have to accept their
flaws given today's SOTA.  I'd cast my one tiny insignificant vote for
improved longpass algorithms rather than working on better clean filters
