  I honestly don't know, I don't think it's possible in the camera. But it is 
in photoshop and there is some great B&W software available to duplicate 
anything that was possible in a darkroom with any kind of film.

Is there an in-camera way to get a some/any DSLR to have a nearly straight up 
B&W gamma curve like Kodak High Contrast Copy film
has/had ??

Maybe not because of the light physics needed in the sensor to avoid saturation 
effects and actually have a gamma slope instead of
an on/off black or white exposure.  This high contrast gamma curve is very 
useful when photographing like the full moon and trying
to get some crater contrast where the brightness differences are very very 

Might be possible to make the effect using a computer-controlled astro CCD that 
permits both exposure control but probably not
possible with hobbyist DSLRs, and certainly not with a DSLR sensor made to also 
do movie stuff.
