Default Running LL test from both ends of the sequence?

I am not a mathematician. I have not studied how the LL method works, nor do not understand it.

A frequent question in these forums concerns the use of two (or more) processors to tackle the same candidate simultaneously in order to reduce the total procedure time. The answers are always that it is either minimally useful or cannot be done.

(Now I am going to show my ignorance.)

Would it possible set the LL test running twice on the same prime candidate starting at each end, as it were, and meeting somewhere in the middle?
