And for those of the list members into PMK Rei's suggestion works with
PMK as well.  

here's a trick i use to get a lot of developer in a small tank.
i mix up twice the volume of the tank, and during the agitation
period corresponding to the middle to the development time, (or
the one before that if it does not fall in the middle,).  it may
not be excatly the same as using a giant tank and all the developer
at once, but it generally seems to work well for me.  i have no
problem using 1+3 even with films like delta 3200.

i haven't used TMAX, because lately i've been on an ilford diet
(with the exception of Neopan1600) but the i've been on a bulk-loading
lately and you can get TMZ  in 100' rolls...
