I agree with Kevin, assuming an SMC device will not use Security
Protocol Out is a bad assumption...Dave

	Subject: Security Protocol Out/Request volume Element Address
	I just noticed that the new Security Protocol Out command
collides with the op code for an SMC device (Request Volume Element
Address).  I thought a free op code was requested.  This means that
Automation devices will never be able to use any of the security
protocols.  I think this is a bad idea.  I don't know where how all the
library vendors missed this.  Can this be changed?
