No info in RPF from Net Render

I know there are several threads happening on Z-depth right now, but I wanted to separate this issue out for ease of people finding it later. I'm testing creating and using the z-depth in RPF which is working great if I render straight out of Cinema. I don't seem to have to worry about the artifacting edges if I use RPF (that's what I'm finding at the moment, anyway) but if I send it to Net Render, nothing is there except the standard color info. Is this a bug or is there something I'm not aware of regarding RPF and Net Render?

Unfortunately this is a long-standing limitation of RLA/RPF.

So as in pointed out in the other thread, how do you deal with Motion Blur if you're using RPF for the depth?

I've used rpfs and rlas until around 2003 when I started needing NET and discovered the bad news. Yes this is an old one.NET only handles 4 channels per rendered frame (RGB+A) and dumps the rest.

When I discovered this position pass workflow in the 10 other threads here I got a bit excited thinking that the exr workflow could replace the old rpf for dof. It seems like that might be the case. As I said elsewhere--DOF is a PITA

Adams work flow in the other thread works for EXR's in the test I just did.
