1.  The feed lines don't need to be much longer than normal.
2.  Gain is not the only issue.  Vertical pattern profile and receive 
S/N also count.  In EME arrays this is a major issue--you can realise 
very little extra gain by going from 8 to 16 Yagis, but you can gain 
receive S/N because the receive lobe is narrower.

Besides, like Hillary said:  It's there!
