I promise I will take some more time to look at it and report my
findings, but reason 1 and lack of time do cause delays for a proper report.

I only recently updated my digikam to the latest (KDE3) development
version, but I try to keep up now.

One of the main things that ufraw does better than digikam is that every
update in the controls has an almost immediate effect on the preview
image (though my CPU does cause delays, but I hope to have that fixed
soon! ;-) )

Of course, I've been using ufraw a lot more for processing RAW than
digikam's recent raw import ui, so I'm more experienced in ufraw.
