    SubjectRe: 2.0.34 ppa.h configuration fix
    Hi David.

    because mode 2 will fail?

    For reference, on my network, there's one box where modes 0 and 1 fail
    but modes 2 and 3 work, and another where only mode 3 works. All of
    the others with EPP will happily accept all four modes. For this
    reason, I'd personally like to see at least modes 0, 2 and 3 retained,
    even if with different designators...

    I will also state that I've yet to see a machine where mode 0 failed
    and mode 1 worked, so mode 1 can probably safely go.

    Best wishes from Riley.
