Of course Sven. Btw, I know that dcraw-load.c does not function on
Windows and I had suggested modifications almost 3 years ago. The

I have had some problems with some CR2 files but not others. Also,
dcraw-load.c does not depend on Libraw.

I agree though with caveat. You need to preprocess RAW files and
dcraw-load.c exports a linear 16-bit image (one size fit all).
