    With opto-isolated triac drivers, specifically the MOC30xx
    series, are the two output terminals pin 4 and 6 interchangeable?
    Both pins are designated as "main terminal" on the datasheet and,
    in the random-phase version, they are represented as the two ends
    of a diac. All sample circuits I've seen show pin 4 connected to
    the gate of the driven triac.

    Thanks. I thought as much but wanted to have confirmation. My
    reason for wanting to be sure was that sometimes it's more
    convenient to reverse pin 4 and 6 on the PCB.
