Yes you can use VTC on a PIG, but it requires some modifications. I did
this a bit ago, and until you mentioned it in this note, I'd
forgotten. There are problems with what the bridge returns, and what I
ended up doing is creating a special version of vtc for mash. I'll look
back at my machine and see if the changes are portable. I may just be able
to send out the modified vtc with instructions.
