After reading pages 16-4 to 16-5 of the Road Map, it seems to me that the only
problem with using FRCOBJCVN when restoring our libraries is if it would take 
more
than 24 hours. In my case, the restore should only take 6 hours and the EUA
predicts 10 hours for object conversion. This would be helpful to do both steps 
at
once because I would put our single 8mm tape in and let it process overnight,
thereby not having to do the object conversion later that next day. Does anybody
know of any problems with this idea?
