I had understood that this was NOT the case; that Omega odvi is a
variant, not a superset. When I raised this some time back, I recall
being told that it would not work having a single source.  Whether the
#ifdef route is right is another matter - ideally the program should
detect incoming odvi and do the right thing silently.


PS of course, the best person to ask would be John Plaice...
