Just tossing out an idea - and I couldn't care either 
way.  How about Phone Sprint on Saturday 0000-0400 and 
CW Sprint on Sunday 0000-0400.

I was slightly annoyed at how far down in the band the 
RTTY test was on 40, and know that there were a number 
of contesters who were involved in both the CW and 
RTTY tests.
