YES--this is what I"m getting at---paper developer seems to be more forgiving of fog due to time or heat yet still allows high contrast development to save the image--film developer--apparently "hotter" would cause more fog to develop then, right? This is due to restrainers, correct? and therefore this WOULD give better dmax in reversal processing of film since it inhibits fog development--or at least will allow reversal processing of older films that have agefog that would otherwise lose dmax.....
