all pseudopotentials and paw sets are "compatible".
Some specialized calculations may not be implemented
in all cases, though. Also note the following: the 
CP code uses for nonlinear core corections the same 
real-space approach as for the augmentation functions. 
As a consequence the "box grid" (nr1b, nr2b, nr3b)
has to be chosen big enough to accommodate all these
