	I think you're right: Ranom is based on <I+> and <I-> unlike
Rfac - I'm not sure this is a particularly useful statistic (so why
did I put it in, I wonder?). But I think anyway the only way to test
for pseudo as opposed to crystallographic symmetry is to merge in
different pointgroups (use "reindex" to change symmetry & resort).
Rmeas may be a better criterion than Rfac
