You can't have the women really start at the same time as the men,
because you'd get a four-person pileup in the center.  I've always
done exchanges in 4 beats, and I wouldn't consider "allmost at the
same time" == "4 beats later".  So I'm thinking men start, then women
start a little early, giving a little more time for the circling.
