Solarization (Sabatier) is a first-developer thing, because it effects how the
image is formed from the latent image by the developer. The second developer
pretty much develops everything that's left on the film, so solarization in the
second developer shouldn't do much. Then again, I never use the E6 kit; does
it require reexposure before the color developer, or is it a fogging (color)
redeveloper that does not require light? If the latter, then there might be an
interesting differential to be had between light-reexposure (from Sabatier)
and chemical reexposure.
