OH ZBF2L

As I know most of COLL and a considerable subset of ZBLL, I learned ZZ to lead into that, but I have found my ZZF2L just cannot compare to my years of practice with CFOP. I am now learning to build edge control into F2L, especially the last pair. Hence: ZBF2L (or really ZBLS).

I only know the high symmetry cases; for the rest I just lead into OLL. Still, for the last insert, I might do a sledgehammer to avoid the dot OLL cases.
