Does the combi: Suntour shifter XC-Expert and Shimano derailleur, works?

I ran XCpro with XTR it worked fine except i had to push the thumb shifter a little past the click to get 8th. I loved Suntour.

Didn't Kona run with suntour thumbies past the intro of STI. I've never had any problems personally, they worked on a similar freewheel spacing and mech swing so can't see why there should be a problem.

Okay,
my second question is about the center to center spacing between the cassette cogs.
There are two types of spacing, see:
http://www.yellowjersey.org/stcass.html
and
http://sheldonbrown.com/k7.html

They talk about the highest and lowest spacers, what's high and what's low?

I always thought that low would refer to the large sprockets and that high would refer to the small ones. To be honest that difference in spacing shouldn't make any difference especially if you use a decent shimano floating jockey as that has far more than .2mm float.
