Hi John,
	Your deduction is correct.  DCD support is in there but not netCDF.  
Given MMTK's fairly clean layout of its trajectory info, I think it 
would be faster for me to add the support than guiding you in adding 
it.  Just FYI, it's not reasonably straightforward to add a new format 
and outside people have done it, but in this particular case I should 
just do it (unless you anticipate wanting yet more formats, in which 
case I _should_ show you how).
	What I would definitely need is an example trajectory or two.  Can you 
provide such?
