At the photo store, where I usually let my B&W C-41 films processed, they 
told me pushing can't be done with their (small) C-41 engine, and needs a 
manual job. They had to send it to their central store. So the quality of a 
pushed B&W film is quite depending on how good this manual job is done. It 
costed me much more than the regular processing, and the quality was 
mediocre. I had the impression that they were just bored to do extra-orders 
on film and would have preferred to sell me a digital camera and printer...
