Great observation on the end effects.  Thanks.

Rich -- 

I like it a lot.  With something strongly-phrased, should be very satisfying. 

You write:

Okay, feedback:

I think the end effects are more (or arguably less) complicated, although I may 
have confused  myself. 

  - If you meet your partner in the weave (as second neighbor), pass by the 
    left, swing the next, and you won't be out at the end at all.  (That is, 
    partners pass across the set at the end.) 

  - If you weave past 2 and the third one is your partner, you swing,  open up 
    facing the line, and then you're out and come in 2 bars into A1, when the 
    next neighbor comes to you. 

I _think_ that if you have an even number of couples, nobody's ever out, and 
if you have an odd number, you'll alternate having one out at the top and one 
out at the bottom. 

Anyway, because the progression was at the beginning, there's no hurried swap. 
If you have to do anything right away, you're already in place for it.
