Thank you very much everyone for answering and donating your thoughts to this thread.
My impression is, that the question of ink jet printing vs. wet prints (silver halide, carbon gelatine, platinum-palladium, etc) seems to be no more a question of image quality, but more a question of durability (though carbon based inkjet prints definitely are extremely durable) and craftsmanship, which some would call snobbery.
Actually I don't think wet prints are snobbery, but I ask myself what one could do, to excercise the process of capturing and printmaking in a way such, that the slower pace and higher density (mental, not log(D)) of the old procedures (film, wet print) could be saved into the modern digital workflow.
I still stick with film for other reasons, which are specific for the medium, but I less and less see the need for wet prints, except it might be a funny exercise.
To me (as a non-pro) a hybrid workflow (film - scanner - inkjet print), as I use it seems optimal, but maybe, once the sensors get really large (6*6 cm ) and affordable I might switch to digital, though I still mistrust digital archives.
