At least it works with the first Pi-to-C in the collection.

Also, I can't help feeling that there's some sort of conduit that produces a bookend from a mangled B, something like this:

`x = 10, y = 12, rule = LifeHistory`

6.3D$5.D2.D$5.2D3$7.A$6.3A$6.A.2A2$.2A$A.A$2.A!

I do know that a bookend+spark produces one:

`x = 4, y = 5, rule = LifeHistory`

.3A$A2.A$2A2$.A!

The only way I know to produce one from a clean LOM is like so:

`x = 29, y = 15, rule = LifeHistory`

8.A$7.A.A$8.A2$6.5A$5.A4.A$4.A2.A$.A2.A.2A$A.A.A5.A15.3D$.A2.A4.A.A

13.D2.D$4.2A2.A2.A12.D2.D$9.2A8.2C4.2D$18.C.C$18.C.C$18.2C!

As for producing a LOM in that position, I have seen things like this differently mangled B:

`x = 23, y = 7, rule = LifeHistory`

13.3B5.A$11.A3B2A4.2A$9.2ABAB3A2.2A$9.A4B3A2.2A$.3D5.A3BA2B3.2A$D2.D

6.3A2B$3D9.A!

The base reaction actually produces two LOMs, but one gets suppressed by this particular mangling.
