I don't recall that we did that specifically, although we did usually do
custom templates for clients. We still should have some systems running
simple acquisitions - however they don't work with the MARC stuff - my
recollection is that once the MARC stuff came at 2.x acquisitions
started to come unstuck because it had no "native" awareness of MARC. So
it would work as long as you had MARC off - but not with MARC on.
I'm guessing that with later versions it got dropped as that was too
hard to reconcile as most people moved to MARC.
We have some non MARC systems still running and they use simple (and
possibly even some original "normal") acquisisitions.
