No, not a detailed compare.  I bring vuescan-scanned images into Photoshop in 
hi-bit mode for further editing, and haven't seen any undesirable softness 
there using cleaning alone.  (The more intense grain elimination clean/filter 
options 2 and 3 that go beyond IR-cleaning of course will soften an image.)  
Except for scratch removal both versions produce very good images that meet my 
needs for both web and print (Epson 1200).  Vuescan 7 sometimes will give 
better initial colors.  

Ideal if Ed could implement it would be an additional filter option (in 7) to 
use 6.7.5's IR-clean algorithm in the cases where it's needed.  

This applies to my images, mostly from stage-lighting in theatre on higher 
speed neg film.  Might be different for daylight shots.
