I think, though, the recognition for this step would be pretty easy in
comparison to ZBLL, right?  Recognizing only OLL should not be TOO
difficult.  You should still even be able to determine OLL case by
looking only at the LL because the twist on the corners is fixed and
you can't have an odd number of flipped edges.  Let's ignore
reflections because they're trivial. ;)  So that is only 216 (assuming
your math is right, I didn't double check it) in order to have a
2-look LL.  Of course, there is still the 3 or so moves to consider to
get into the Case1 situation, but it is *almost* always trivial.  Has
anybody considered what the recognition would be like for this case?
