Is there much practical difference between UNIFY NORMALS and ALIGN? From the dox, the only thing I can see is that UN takes the first chosen poly as the desired normal direction, whereas ALIGN seems to try to guess.

Yes, ALIGN count the normals facing each direction and make all face the "major" direction.

"Select an area that includes the polygons needing to be flipped, as well as a large number of
polygons facing the correct direction"
