Hello Brian,

I was avatising Binary cascade because for light fragments like deuteron, 
alpha, ... futher simulation will be more precise than in LHEP models.
For neutron incident 1-100 MeV I would use PreCompound or Binary if your 
are using 8.X seria of geant4. With 9.0 probably Bertini can be also 

About options and modification of model parameters - not such obvious for
today. For G4QElastic you can contact real author Mikhail Kosov. Binary
parameters are reasonably optimised, I would not play with Binary options,
but you can also contact main author Gunter Folger.  For PreCompound there
are options, for today better to post questions in HyperNews if you want
to play with.
