New p5 Herschel technology
The circuit's p5 limitation is somewhat mitigated by its reversibility -- there are two mirror-image ways to receive the two gliders, whereas most tandem gliders need either a left- or right-handed receiver. (Some pairs of gliders with two-cell separation, usually produced with the assistance of a boojum reflector, can be received ambidextrously by standard receivers -- but this significantly alters the timing of the circuit.)
Depending on the position of the block, either of the two gliders can be chosen to trigger the Herschel output, while the other one resets the circuit. The circuit can also be hooked up to any glider output of a Herschel track for use as a period doubling fanout device, or a two-state track switch (two circuits on two glider outputs with alternating block positions).
