I seem to recall being taught the step-cut-step version with the note that
"you can go quite far with this variation".  If I am on the end of a set of
Petit V'rien with some high-speed lunatic on the left, I will use that step
as then I can keep up.

passing steps starts to look a lot like running.  Step-cut-step does not
look like any normal gait, so it feels like you are doing something
different, which must mean you are dancing.
