When you originally removed this "feature" you put it into a context of
"having problems with it causing problems with color neutrality".
(1) Did you fix this? and ...
(2) How does Vuescan deal with color neutrality in general? That is,
assuming you are working with the 3 RGB channels, the same "brightness"
applied to all three should alter hue. If you apply the same "contrast"
scaler to all three it should alter saturation (and hue). Similarly, apply
the same "gamma" to all three channels should cause similar problems.
Presumably, these operations could be independently be applied to all
three channels if primarily applied(for example) to 'L' in "Lab" space, or
'L' in "HSL" space(?) You have never mentioned using intermediate color
spaces ... without exposing Vuescan secrets, can you enlighten us?
