Also, the needs may vay, depending on what machine they're 
doing the run on. If you're pushing a low-tech board their way, 
they may be using the "crapotron-3000" from 198x  that wants an 
old-style cross-in-a-box, but your 0.5mm fineline BGA might 
want a new-style 1mm circle. Worth a phone call, since you're on 
the same team. 
(just spent the evening applying a couple of manufacturability 
tweaks to a pretty complex board a customer's running through a 
Chinese shop, in 10K+ batches. P99SE, SP6, plus Specctra, while 
not perfect, does get the job done. Here's hoping that 2004 
makes things a little easier / quicker / cheaper / better.)
