UFRAW is based on DCRAW and the DCRAW code base is very widely used.  For
example, I know that the raw conversion code in recent versions of Photoshop
are based on DCRAW.

I'd guess that Adobe didn't feel like reverse engineering various RAW
formats (and having deep pockets, opening themselves up to potential
law suits in the USA), so they made use of the raw format knowledge
or code in DcRaw. I'd be rather surprised if any of the de-mosaicing or
other pixel processing in Photoshop are based on DcRaw through.
