Actually, this is a good point which I forgot.  I've been using
software other than the GIMP for initial processing (mostly level
adjustment) to access the full 16-bits/color from my scanner, then
doing touch-up in the GIMP.  Having access to all 16-bits/color would
be a great thing to have in the GIMP....
