Well, the OP did ask for fine grain like Acros, and with a film that isn't "natively" especially fine-grained that's going to mean seeking a development regime that minimizes the grain. I agree with you in the abstract, but if somebody says "I want to develop for fine grain", they probably won't be satisfied with the answer "don't do that". :-) (And in the case of the Kentmere films my favorite answer, "shoot a larger format", doesn't apply either.)

Perceptol seems like a natural developer to try---I've seen people post nice-looking results with Kentmere 100 in it, and Ilford provides times on the data sheet.
