That for one and second DPP can correct lens flaws (like chromatic 
aberrations, distortions etc).

What I miss with most raw developers: the ability to store some basic 
corrections (like rotate and clipping) with a ID file like ufraw does 
- a kind of recipe. So if I have to do the stuff once again with 
little changes I change the recipe and rerun the development. 
RawTherapee has something alike.
