...i know people who used to print color negs on black and white paper (this results in some red/blue scewing i seem to recall?)

Most black and white papers are orthochromatic, so naturally they won't print any red light from a colour neg. On top of that, VC papers use blue and green sensitivity to determine contrast in the print so blue light from a colour neg should print more contrasty. If someone wanted to create an accurate black and white print from a colour neg they would need to be printing on panchromatic black and white paper.
