Re: filmscanners: VueScan Long Exposure Pass

Boy, that's "strewth!" And I thought the problem was just with Scanwit
(which can't use a Long Exposure, anyway). Seems it's more widespread, and
the everyone's just been quiet about it over this past year I've been on the
List. :-)

Definitely see your point, Ed, but it sounds a bit like throwing out
something that isn't badly broken. Wouldn't an "explained option" and maybe
a "warning window" be better than tossing the whole thing overboard? I *do*
actually understand, having been faced with those choices in
"much-more-minor" programming in the past, but I don't pretend to understand
advanced programming, per se.

A retorical question, perhaps.
