Answers to both at http://ls.unavco.org/pipermail/teqc/2009/000827.html

The main problem was that the original "compact" ASCII format was developed
(for the now ancient but predecessor-to-teqc UNAVCO program "QC") when
there was only GPS SVs to consider.  It wasn't really set up for GNSS
complications.  Hence, the update to "compact2" for GNSS data.
