Well, I thought of it myself while I was writing the book. Since it's a pretty obvious solution to the two-LOP problem, I can't be the first one to write it up.
The interesting obsevation is that it requires solutions to five equatioins, while computing St. Hilaire for a two-LOP fix requires four solutions of the same type equations, PLUS DRs, straight-line approxmations to the LOPs, and plotting. So the one extra equation yield a pretty good return...
And Kermit, Thanks for your note.
