By popular demand, you can now force a swap modify to be done when
doing a Start Run. On the web page, there is a new checkbox, and on ops, template_startrun takes a new -m option. Caveat: You cannot specify a new NS file, yet. The original file is reparsed, and the idea is that a change in the template parameters will result in a change to the topology. I will add the ability to specify a new NS file in the next revision of this change. If you really really want to change the NS file, go to /proj/$pid/exp/$eid/archive/nsdata and edit nsfile.ns ... In addtion, DATASTORE is now defined while parsing the NS file. This turned to be quite the headache!
