The ZF HP8 sport auto is damn near as fast as a DCT, but it is lighter, less complicated, and is better around town. The only reason to want a DCT is for "my car is better than your because it has two clutches" arguments.

Having only a manual and fast auto option is best because a DCT is not going to be good for people that just want a luxury car (which is the majority of people that get autos), and people that want manuals are going to get manuals. My advice to you is teach your family to drive a stick.
