I don't think there really is any difference between the two cases. The 
more I think about it, the more I think that 6th's place Morning Star is 
really a twin hunter with a lead of 12 changes. It doesn't seem right to 
make an exception for these cases. A single-lead method barely qualifies 
as a TD method at the best of times, perhaps, anyway!
