Yes, it is a simple qt4 program which allows the user to quickly
browse RAW or JPEG files and toggle/mark 'selects', which is stored in
a plain text file. This file can easily be fed into a batch-process
command / script. It does *not* offer any other features, such as
sharpening, crop, red-eye, color adjustment, etc. If you use the dcraw
in ports, it does not do 'auto orient', so if your wife is shooting
with this feature disabled on her camera the images _may_ appear
sideways. I have an updated dcraw-m that reads the orientation
information and rotates the preview image, but otherwise it works
fine, it's perfectly usable without it. :)

Also might check out this 'beenie' program that I use to automatically
download cards onto the computer. Basically after a shoot I can stick
in 4 SD cards at once and the software automatically creates folders
with the date, and copies the contents and pre-processes the files. (I
use it for video, I realized I was spending alot of time loading one
card after another and copying the contents, etc). It's more of a
hack-type program, but I've been using it for about a year without
trouble. It would likely need some customization for your specific
