A hook flipping component in 6G. It solves at least one 19 bitter so maybe it is useful elsewhere:

Unecessarily complex solution for xs19_64p7gci6zx121:

It would be nice if someone could publish a list of the remaining xs19s sorted by appearances on catagolue so we have some sort of "hitlist" for 19-bitters to attempt next.

I made a snake-to-eater component that solves 5 of the unsolved 19-bitters:

Does anyone know what's going on here? Is there prior art for snake-to-eater that just doesn't work in this specific configuration? I did need to find my own domino inserter to work here so it's quite possible.

I doubt there's anything special going on--that's just a non-obvious useful transformation and you happened to be the first to get it. Or perhaps there really is a steric hindrance problem in existing work.

Here's a way to make certain corner beehive configurations:

EDIT: There are a few still lifes that this doesn't quite work with, but only because of the bun-unfolding step that I don't immediately see a workaround for. Large still lifes get in the way of themselves.

There are still a number of still lifes with an at-beehive, simply because other parts of the still life get in the way of the existing at-beehive adders. This can get to an at-loaf, based on Extrementhusiast's adder, but I'm having trouble downgrading it back into a beehive.

Here's a still life that required a bunch of scaffolding, but is probably reducible:

```
x = 128, y = 13, rule = B3/S23
85bo2bo$89bo$84b6o$85bobo$4bo5b2o32bo39bo2bo36b2o$2b3o3b4o30b3o37b3o
