I think a lot of people misunderstood me hear.  I should have been more
clear.  PDN isn't an absolute must for digital negatives, but for my
personal workflow, it's much more reliable than Dan's.  In the long run,
it saves me time in that I don't have to do any curve tweaking (which
equates to fewer test prints).  It's more WYSIWYG (for me, at least) than
Dan's, which I prefer.

Me too. :)  I didn't truely understand the inner workings of PDN until I
got my hands on Dan's book.
