I would try this - I really have a lot of difficulties with Vuescan, but it 
DOES seem to work much of the time, and if I had the LS30 I'd use it by 
default as Rob does.

That 10bits is apparently a real 10bits, and the black and white points do 
work IME.  There is sometimes a confusing problem though and that is it 
seems to get confused around the edges of the frame and will use the 
unexposed portion of the image in its black/white point measurement which 
is not very useful.  It seems that the cropping is not very accurate.

I think Ed would make it much more user friendly if the exposure algorithm 
automatically applied a buffer which blanks out the outer 10% of the image 
from exposure calculations.
