Hi all, 

This is a good example about the uncompatibility of dcraw command line option. 
I have tried to update the dcraw implementation into digiKam core and 
kipi-plugins RAW converter from 8.40 and 8.42 (the last version), and look 
like the "-s" option has _CHANGED_ :

8.40:    "\n-s        Use secondary pixels (Fuji Super CCD SR only)"

8.42:    "\n-s [0-99] Select a different raw image from the same file"

On the RCS file (cvs), we can find this simple comment :

@Support the Olympus E-400 and Sinar 4-shot files.
Updated color matrices from DNG Converter 3.6.
Changed "-s" option to support multi-shot cameras.

This suck roally (:=(

I'm happy to have chozen the solution to use an embeded version of dcraw 
source code in kipi-plugin and digiKam instead to continue to use an external 
dcraw depency.

To support the last dcraw source code, i need to update my dcraw interface in 
both programs. It's redondant. This including a littlle question : why not to 
create a new shared "libkdcraw" library witch include this interface and the 
compatible dcraw.c implementation ?
