There is no reason to import RAW file in gimp... especially because it
doesn't support 16 bits color depth. It's really weird to import and edit
RAW file in 8 bits...

With new RAW import tool from digiKam based on libraw, there is no advantage
to switch to ufraw.


Also, Gimp support, preserve, and manage all Metadata ? digiKam use Exiv2
since a long time now, and metadata management is very important for
