After a lot more testing i can only agree with you...i'll try to find a
smaller threshold for WP.

I'm kinda glad about the BP and WP names, cause i think that if we go to
"auto exposure" and "auto contrast", it shouldn't be in curves but on
the sliders instead... I myself, never used curves before, but after all
the curves development, i never use the sliders anymore, curves are
I've made a shortcut for myself during testing, as soon as we have some
final here, i'll commit one or two shortcuts for this :)
