the kipi-plugins raw converter plugin allows interactive adjustments of 
all conversion parameters that dcraw allows:

ufraw is a very nice plugin and it allows adjustments to the 
extracted image (from the raw image) in 16 bits, thus overcoming the 
inability of gimp to work in 16 bit colorspace. imho, the correct
solution (tm) is to extract the image from raw image in 16 bit format and 
allow the host app to do the adjustments to the image. we are working on adding 
16 bit support to digikam
