I agree with Bill Dallas' short summation of potential problems with mapping 
parallel SCSI behavior onto a serial interconnect. Internally within Unisys 
I have an education problem in getting people to understand that parallel 
SCSI code cannot be mapped blindly over to serial Fibre Channel. None of our 
implementations in parallel SCSI have implemented ACA as yet and most were 
not planning to add it for the serial interface conversion. It will be a 
requirement for any serial SCSI implementation, but very few people outside 
of the standards development community have even become aware of its 
existance yet.

OK Bill, you got my attention. Now what do we do?
