Editing RAW images with Gimp

gimpGimp has some native support for the RAW format, but it seems to be quite limited.  Additionally the RAW format is implemented differently across camera manufacturers and even across different camera models.

RawTherapee allows you to open RAW images and save them to the .jpg format, which can then be opened in Gimp.  It reportedly supports a wide range of RAW formats.
