Short answer Swishman, I dont think it really matters which way you swap them as it's gunna be different every time as you roll off hills or trafficlights change or what ever 


As long as the grinding is kept to a minimum 


Plenty of experts out there who know and done more than I'll ever dream of doing

That's the sequence we used (most of the time anyway) on the 20-speed (main direct in 5th).  On the 18-speed (main direct in 4th), skip Lo-Split 5th and Direct 5th (they duplicated other gears).  So, they were the same up through Hi-Split 4th.  Then you just shifted the main to 5th.  Long-legged mothers, those 18-speeds.
