I do not believe that is correct, (unless boiling the stuff turns the
sulphite in Sulfide)

   I was going by memory and thinking of another formula similar to the one Ansel Adams has in early editions of _The Print_. T-55 appears to be similar to KRST. I also got copies of the patents refered to by Mees. These are similar to T-55, requiring long boiling. I would not try to make the stuff. I think KRST is relatively harmless but the process for making it certainly is not.
