Hmm, now that the splitters aren't all described as highway robbers, that last one I added is looking pretty ugly. It was just there because it's the only 2-still-life highway-robbing splitter with the same properties as the loaf and block: the gliders have different parities and colors. Probably I should have just gotten rid of the highway-robber requirement instead of trying to come up with a substitute that made sense with the whole existing description.
Maybe it would be good to substitute a faster splitter with some other interesting feature, like one that sends a glider off to the side but leaves another glider on the exact same input lane. That allows the splitter be added in to an existing one-time-turner sequence to get an extra glider out ... as long as it's okay for the glider's timing to change a little bit:

Like a number of these splitters, this is really just a turner (the long-boat turner) -- plus an additional boat that uses a transient spark to create an extra glider.
It seems like a good idea to not go overboard adding splitters to this stamp collection, though. This is the "turners" article, and really what we need instead is to add a much bigger stamp collection to the splitters article. Three splitters seems like plenty enough of a random tangent, even when this last one above is really just a turner in disguise plus an extra boat to turn into glider #2.
