OK, point well taken.  I believe they started out as 1742 compatible
(correct me if I'm wrong) but diverged.  However, I believe they still
will work with drivers that don't use every extended option of their
command language.

Also, they are pretty much functionally equivelant, and almost
identical to the driver (very small differences).  And, the point is
moot on NetBSD anway, since they both work equally well with the O/S.
