Subject: [Leica] T400-CN v. "true" B&W

I know that T400-CN is not standard BW since it uses
color negative chemistry.  But, aside from that fact, what
are the differences in the negatives that one would get
from a roll of T400-CN as opposed to TMAX 400?
Would they look the same, or is there an advantage to
using one or the other?  Is T400-CN just a lazy man's
BW film, for those who don't want to mess with the darkroom?
Does it provide EQUAL results, or are TMAX negatives 
superior in contrast or sharpness?  Will both negatives
enlarge to 16x20 equally well?
