New coils

I just read in one of these threads that all new small engine coils come with built in electronic ignition. I just bought a new coil for my 46 year old 6 HP Tecumseh. Just because I thought it was time. I havent installed it yet. I did not see anything on the package that mentioned the elect ign. Is there anyway to tell if has this feature? It is probably the exact replacement, as it has a quite long secondary wire which this engine needs. It has two primary wires, one shorter,and one longer which would go to the points, and ground. Just asking.
It would be great if that were the case.

For Briggs engines, yes, they come with electronic ignition. For Tecumsehs, you aren't so lucky.
