Reverse Headstocks , are they Ergonomically superior ?

I would guess that Young's Modulus would apply the coefficient of elasticity to the entire length of the string when you bend it, if it's sliding in a non-locked nut. Wouldn't 29" of wire have a different, lesser degree of vertical deformation than 25" of wire, for a given amount of sideways force?

ofcourse it would, but this has nothing to do with youngs modulus :D its about reducing friction between the string and the nut.
I own both types, and I like them pretty equally. One is no better than the other, whether ergonomically, or otherwise. Depending on the headstock shape, one style may look better reversed while another style may look better in the standard configuration...
