That sounds more than plausible to me, Chuck, if my interpretation is
correct - that image contrast has more to do with perceived image sharpness
than does lens resolution.  In fact it reminds me of using a compensating
developer many years ago for just that effect.

I can find lots of references to the supposition that deveopment of an
indivdiual grain is a binary event but nothing scientifically definitive.

While looking around I also stumbled across this interesting but
unsubstiated statement: "Surprisingly, tests have shown that an observer's
perception of sharpness is more dependent on bit depth than on resolution."
