Lets consider this one solved. You all get a feather of some sort or another for really good answers. Thanks. Additions are still welcome though as there are more specific examples out there.

Ilford had a product called ID-11 Plus which was said to be D-76 with the addition of Cinnamic acid and also a mercaptan, although I must confess that I don`t know what the functions of these components are, perhaps you could enlighten us.
Also, BKA sell a product called Crone C additive which is supposed to enhance the performance of D-76/ID-11 although not something that I`ve tried and not available over here in the UK.
