Question Weight of a track

Dear developpers,

I am looking to hadronic processes (proton -> Beryllium target), and I was looking to secondary production. As there is large discrepency of G4/QGSP with respect to FLUKA and analytic description, I was looking to the G4Track header file and found this piece of code:

  // track weight
  // These are methods for manipulating a weight for this track.
   G4double GetWeight() const;
   void     SetWeight(G4double aValue);

Does it mean that each (or some) track is affected by a multiplicity
 weight which may be the source of the discrepency found (note that MARS
FLUKA are using weight method to produce the particles...)?

Regards Jean-Eric Campagne
