Hyperglide Cassette on Uniglide Hub

I have been finding conflicting information on this. Will hyperglide cassettes fit on a uniglide hub without modification or is it necessary to grind down the wide tab on the cassette? If the latter, it sounds like far more work than justified and time to buy a new hub.

Thanks

Can't recall the answer offhand, but I know Sheldon Brown put a pretty thorough discussion of this at the Harris bike website.
