This P4 needs to be added to the wiki. I think the title would be 20P4 unless someone has a better name.
I'll call it four Ls because of how one of its phases looks, though two of those Ls are differently shaped.

Re: Soup search results

There was a discussion about it in this thread three months ago. Yes, that one. If switch engines are quite common, what's the chance of a 2-engine Cordership spontaneously appearing in soup? Zero. It's ridiculous (a 2EC is larger than the 16-by-16 square seed). And then I was proven flat-out wrong...
