Thanks for the input. Yes, I'd guess the User's Library would ban SP since it's, well, for "users". Similarly, App Packs on cards or printed media would prob shy away from SP
But what about App. *Modules*?? Looks like my math module, etc. employ straight HP user code. Other modules may use machine code for certain functions as well.

As far as I know, HP never used SP in any of its own products. SP was routinely banned from the User's Library, so your chances of having your program rejected from the UL climbed to 100% if it included a mere STO M. This policy was revised some time later, and the UL started to accept programs where SP was used and well-documented.
The application pacs, however, had always plain-vanilla, SP-free code. If anyone knows different, I'd love to hear that.
