Conversly, i.e. the other side of the coin, is that one can use "Default" or 
"Image" as the original preview scan, and then use any one of the film-type 
profiles to alter the appearance of the picture, using the Scan Memory facility 
of Vuescan, regardless of what film you happened to be using that day (or in my 
case, what film "Whomever" happened to be using). :-) 

Seems to me, this gives an artistic photographer a lot more lattitude than just 
loading up the favorite film and banging away. Excuse me if I'm missing 
something here, but I've always thought that artistic expression was always 
enhanced by the artist's recognizing the value of "Happy Accident."  Nothing 
against "total control" (I envy it), but sometimes the "suprise" is better that 
our plans. Not always, of course, but sometimes. :-)
