log mode in "unbreak input profile" inconsistent with filmic
There was a lot of improvements in the auto-tuner of "filmic", that would be relevant for "unbreak input profile" too. For example "unbreak input profile" often sets the black cursor to -16 EV while this was changed for filmic. Also, unbreak input profile has a "dynamic range" cursor while filmic has a white relative exposure cursor for the same purpose (modulo an addition/subtraction with the white cursor).
Not a very serious issue since this log mode in unbreak input profile is much less useful since filmic is there, but it would be cool to be more consistent.

The dynamic range option vs black/white exposure is still something I'm not sure. Filmic needs the white and black because these values are used later in the S curve building. Unbreak profile does nothing with it later. The dynamic range is a well-known, tabulated, value you can find out for each sensor at a given ISO sensibility, and I feel it's more intuitive to use rather than asking users to compute the black exposure from the DR and the white exposure.
