With the newer GF, the PWC options are always compiled in, but are enabled 
at runtime using a message that you have to send after the "open". This is 
reflected in the structure of [#camera], which also greys-out any sliders 
you can't use, etc.

Some older versions of GF used PWC options supposing they wouldn't 
conflict with other camera drivers, which wasn't completely true, and so 
there was a tiny compile-time hack that had to be done, but this has been 
over for a while.

Just don't use GridFlow from CVS, though, as it is probably that much old 
(maybe not). GridFlow switched to SVN a while ago, but I haven't removed 
the CVS yet.
