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.
