Otherwise if one decreases exposure one should extend development by an "X" amount to have a general compensation for the resulting flatness.
You do some disagree?
Hey AndreasT,

It's OK... High flare situations are not going to be flat so you don't extend development. There will be bright lights and dark shadows.

Old rule of thumb for amateurs is to expose more in high flare situations like backlighting and silhouette. That's only because of bad metering.

ChuckP is talking about metering carefully and then, because the shadows aren't as black as he wants, making them a little blacker.
