Quantization of superflow circulation and of magnetic flux are considered for systems, such as superfluid He-3-A and unconventional superconductors, having nonscalar order parameters. The circulation is shown to be the anholonomy in the parallel transport of the order parameter. For multiply-connected samples free of distributed vorticity, circulation and flux are predicted to be quantized, but generically to nonintegral values that are tunably offset from integers. This amounts to a version of Aharonov-Bohm physics. Experimental settings for testing these issues are discussed.
