It would be nice to have a plugin allowing for local adjustments. In Adobe Lightroom there is a dedicated brush to achieve this with various adjustments. The way used in by NikSoftware (Upoint) is also nice, it works faster than lightroom, but allows less control.
I personally use this mostly to light up or darken specific areas, but other adjustments are useful too.
thanks and keep up the good work!

you may want to have a look at the "masks" branch in our git repository. This is half-way implementation of local editing features for darktable. Currently nobody is working on this but Henrik wants to finish his work there as soon as possible. If you want to contribute to this, don't hesitate to ping him (dinamic on IRC).
