I don't know about the extra 0.8mm either.  SCAT seems to be the only
crank manufacturer that does that.

I was thinking of it as 0.2 mm UNDER 79mm, rather than 0.8 mm over 78mm. I
thought 79 was the "standard" since the stock stroke is 69 mm and the stroker
cranks seemed to go up in 5 mm steps, although there's really no reason why
this has to be this way. Is 78 mm also a "standard?" As you can imagine, I
don't follow this darkside stuff much.

78mm seems to one of the standards.

I doubt if SCAT is a manufacturer of anything. I suspect they are just a brand
name that markets much of the same stuff that everyone else sells.

Actually they do manufacture their own cranks for VWs along with cranks for other brands like Ford, Nissan, and Toyota. I am sure most of the rest of the stuff is the same aftermarket stuff that all of the big parts houses sell, but the cranks are their own.

Check out the SCAT story here:
