DENSITY specifies whether the tape is to be written at
high or low density. The tape speeds corresponding to each density
can be specified in the setup file using TPSPEEDH SP:TPSPEEDH
and TPSPEEDLSP:TPSPEEDL or, better, they can be allowed to
For S2 tapes, density ``H'' refers to SLP and ``L''

- Options: The first letter of each string must be ``H'' or ``L''

- Default: H for the VLBA and VLA, L for others
