That's curious. I'll play a little with it. How many of those are there? Ideally I guess you'd want to test combinations of two or more of these too, but that might end up in a truckload of combinations.

Not sure if that was just some kind of cosmetic error in your mail but just FYI, NT (source file NT_fmt_plug.c) is one thing, and nt2 (source file nt2_fmt_plug.c) are completely different implementations of the same format. With today's naming the latter would be called nt-ng I suppose.
