That applies to Silver B&W being used in a wet darkroom, but does it apply
to C41 B&W being scanned for digital printing?  The dynamic range
(tolerance) of color film is great, and can be pretty effective if you
stretch the contrast in digital processing.  I do like the quality of the
contrast of my C-41 B&W scanned and manipulated digitally.  If you print the
unmodified scanned image, it is indeed very flat.
