How raw is RAW?

Some of the processing a camera will perform on the CCD data to deliver the final jpeg
like applying a white balance you absolutely wouldn't want in a RAW. However, I would
think corrections to the CCD for the optics like lens distortion, vignetting, or color fringing
one would want in a RAW. What does CHDK output as RAW; just the bare CCD data or
optically corrected CCD data?

As far as I can see, there are no changes on the raw data. Raw and jpg pictures are different in geometric. The lens correction is a real problem during raw prcessing and creating jpg output.
