I like the description as it is. The only thing I personally don't fully understand is the "(*note Logfile Structure::)".

It is a link to the chapter "Logfile Structure". When you are reading the info manual (with the info program), just put the cursor on it and hit ENTER to see what the block status characters are.

What I meant was that this feature will probably be used with simple translation rules most of the time, possibly only changing one type into one other type.

I have in fact added a shorthand for what I think will be the most used complex rule. "--invert-logfile", which is equivalent to "--change-types=?*/-+,++++-"

BTW, if someone reading this list have interesting use cases for the new features of ddrescuelog, please post them here so that I can include them in the manual. Thanks!

I would use 512 byte for both. After all, file system cluster sizes may vary anyway. It's no big deal, however, so feel free to leave it as it is. Users should check the man page and not rely on default values anyway.

I am no filesystem expert, but no filesystem seems to be using a block size smaller than 1024 bytes. So using 512 as a default for ddrescuelog does not seem to be useful.
