This was discussed in his section on using ferricyanide bleach. He didn't
say someone else did it, but rather he said he did it occasionally on some
prints. As I remember I tried his bleach formula as described in this
section trying to "brighten" a print and after flipping the print face up in
a tray of wash water discovered a blank print. So his formula worked
perfectly, my print was much brighter.
