Never heard of that Devere enlarger, that is interesting. Still I think you would be hard pressed to find many people that agree with you the old way is better. And those that do I imagine would also think film is an integral part of the process.
As you may already know, a lot of digital prints done at commercial labs and even drug stores are in fact true, developed photographic prints. (I work at a photo lab that serves both consumers and professionals). However the prints are not projected through an enlarging head as you are describing. The machine uses either colored lasers or colored LEDs to draw a picture of your picture on the photographic paper, which then gets developed in chemicals. Of course this is all done by the machine, so you are not moving prints from tray to tray.
