It certainly looks like there will be two schools of thought on this
subject for some time in the future. 
The gains that are being made almost daily in the world of digital
printing is nothing short of amazing. Leica glass can only be an
advantage to people who wish to experiment digitally.
Erwin should take a look at the work of some of the best in the business
these days, such as Galen Rowell in California. Go to his web site and
read about the latest fine art printing that is being done with his
images by digital and the use of the 35 mm format. As Mr. Rowell states,
the quality of the print is something that must be seen. This certainly
should be pause for thought for  those who maintain the darkroom is
still the only way to go.
Also take a look at Jon Kone's inkjet mall site and see the advances in
black and white inkjet printing using piezography plug in software. I
have personally seen examples of this work and it is amazing.
Why should we not believe with these advances, that digital will not be
the way of the future or at least a very viable alternative to the
regular darkroom. This technology is proving itself now with many pros.
