People must have found this before.

Wow. I don't recognise this, and it looks like it's conceivably following some one-dimensional cellular automaton. If so, could variants of this oscillator be used to prove omniperiodicity?

Nah. All 2-Tanner constellations are evaluated, but for 3-Tanner constellations I've just been looking for LWSS and HWSS guns. My search wouldn't catch a MWSS that is fundamentally different than the one already known. And the HWSS gun search is still going (and perhaps unrealistic given how long it took to even find the LWSS gun).

I assume your goal was to find the smallest possible stabilisation for that p14 long barge-hassling reaction?

More like any stabilization at all for that reaction, which I had actually found quite a while ago. (Said reaction can actually be of any even period > 13; it serves as a period doubler for whatever sparkers are driving it.)

The search for the sparker was actually quite annoying, as probably over a dozen times during the search, I had found a partial stabilization that required changing two or three cells to drive the rest of the oscillator, only to not find anything to drive those two or three cells. This was despite the fact that the search covered both P7 (the minimum allowable period for the reaction, and, as if to troll me, both a prime period and the minimum period not to feature a sparker with a small-enough footprint) and P8 (in the hopes of reducing it to P4, which would have been stabilized much more easily), and I even had a bit of P9 in there (in the hopes of reducing it to P3). At one point, I was even thinking about doing a drifter search, as demonstrated somewhat by the following P8 partial:
`x = 12, y = 17, rule = B3/S237b2o\$2b2o2bobo\$bobo2bobob2o\$bobob2obo2bo\$2obo2bobo2bo\$o2bo2bo2bobo\$b2o3bo4bo\$2bo\$2bob2ob2obo\$b3o3b2o\$o5bo2b3o\$b2obo2b2o\$2bob2obo3bo\$2bo2bo2b4o\$3bobo\$4bo3b2o\$8b2o!`

Speaking of smaller stabilizations, this chops off half of this new sparker:

This is really difficult to stabilize:
`x = 9, y = 12, rule = B3/S232o\$o2bob2obo\$b3obob2o2\$3b2o\$3bobo\$3bobo\$3b2o2\$b3obob2o\$o2bob2obo\$2o!`

EDIT: This may be of some use:
`x = 27, y = 27, rule = B3/S234bo2\$3b2o\$bo2bo\$b3o3\$bo\$o2bobo\$3o2b2o\$6b2o4b2o\$5b2o5b2o2\$15b2o\$15b2o5\$5b2o9bo\$5bobo7b3o\$6b2o7bob2o\$23b2obo\$18bo3bobo\$17bo4bo\$17bobo2b2o\$17b2o!`

Thanks. That component is really handy, isn't it?

Well, found some intriguing (but pointless) interaction:

`x = 16, y = 19, rule = LifeHistory12.2A\$12.A\$14.A\$10.5A\$10.A\$12.B2A\$12.2A.A\$A2BA2B6.2A.A\$4BAB6.B2A\$A3BAB\$B4AB6.B2A\$.8B3.2A.A\$12.2A.A\$12.B2A\$10.A\$10.5A\$14.A\$12.A\$12.2A!`

note that the oscilator changes phase while eating the spaceship
