Having watched this discussion this morning I just have to add my $0.02
worth.

I personally favour the new chapter on the right hand side convention.
Hey, its convention and I am confortable with it. From the discussion
to date one can assume so are lots of other people.

I believe it is important to create a document that produces very little
"noise" for the reader. Putting new chapters on the left is different
from the norm. It will be noticed - "noise".

While there will be those readers where it is noticed and forgotten
there will be other readers where it will be totally distracting. Is it
really worth alienating them?

From my personal stand point, I favour blank pages. I ***hate*** those
"This page is intentionally left blank" messages. It is a pet peeve and
it drives me to distraction.
