Dear Brent,

i. there is work ongoing on d+A reaction modeling, but I cannot assure you
that will be finalized in "the near future", considering that d+d is a
case a bit special

ii. of course you can implement a neutron spectrum as source term, by
customizing the source.f user routine provided in the usermvax
directory. The manual documentation (Sec 13.2) will help you to some
