I'm assuming all zz items in b3s23/C1 eventually get manually converted to yl ones?

Yes, or at least those that are, in fact, linear-growth patterns.

Can't wait until our first (real) zz_QUADRATIC.

Would there then be a new "yq" category for quadratic patterns?

A heart on two beehives finally appeared in an asymmetric soup

Did you find this from a soup? If so, could you please post a link to it? B heptominos are easy to synthesize, but they and their predecessors tend to move rapidly forward, so it's not easy to make one in a position where a beehive could be brought in behind it.
