The Canon G-series works wonderfully as they deliver RAW files as well. I have read some good things about the new S120 as well. I unfortunately don't use a P&S at the moment...if I had to choose though it would one of the Canon G series cameras.
Apart from my "large" camera I use a cannon powershot s95. I carry this small camera at all times and it used very often, when situations present themselves unexpectedly. Look at reviews on this camera. I have not been disappointed with the results. I have had many images accepted here.

I just bought about 2 months ago a Leica D-Lux 3 after a long time of searching. Its only 10 megapixels but I haven't had any issues getting the pictures accepted anywhere, its just hard to get used to using a camera so small Oh and just wanted to add it has an all manual setting which is great
I've been using the canon sx120 for quite some time and DT has accepted quite a few images that I've shot from it. In face one of my biggest sale is of an image that I shot using that camera
But there are downsides to using a small camera too. Often the high ISO images will not get selected either due to noise or softness (if noise reduction is used), at times images that the camera showed as perfectly focused will be rejected on focus issues by DT, the lenses of pocket cams are nowhere as sharp as an independent lens so even a little loss in focus will get you a rejection from DT
Is there any difference in sharpness and clarity between A Canon and a Nikon. I have a canon 7d. A friend of mine, a Nikon devotee has been trying to talk me into getting rid of my junk, as he calls it, and buy a Nikon V1 or 2. Any thoughts on this?
Actually there were several posts on this issue. I'm with Clearvista on this. I have the S95. The S110 and S120 are pretty much the same. These cameras have the same sensor as the G series and produce great images and shoot raw if you're into it. But they are much much smaller and lighter than the G series. I am still amazed at how small the camera is. So if it's a 'pocket' camera you want this will be a great choice. As Clearvista suggested, search for reviews of these cameras. You can check my portfolio and sort by latest uploaded. My last 32 images (from Ukraine) were taken with the S95.

Well, just purchased a used Leica d-lux 4. I don't know why just got obsessed with trying out the famous brand camera at some level. Hope i will like it. I was looking for a compact camera and i finally made a purchase.
