The problem is that I recently read about the scaling problems in any non-
linear colour space and as a result have tried scaling some of my images in a 
16 bit linear colour space - with stunning results. So UFRaw helps with the 
first problem of doing the conversion but 8 bit GIMP is messing up things 
later in the editing process... For the moment I am living with the results 
but now knowing how much better they can look without having to compensate 
late in the editing process having a workflow which would start with the 14 
bit depth my camera provides per colour channel and never drops to a non 
linear colour space before the final save to JPEG would be preferred and I 
hope that a GEGL enabled GIMP will do so in the forseable future...
