I have had a nice idea, which probably is anticipated, so if someone gets rid of all the duals, feel free to send it in. Also, it has only the thematic line-opening in one variation (see exclamation mark).

EDIT: Removed to not spoiler. :-)

The scheme is very nice. But has an inherently one idle rook in each solution. So not usable.

Well, possibly make it as a one-phased problem then, i.e. with only the 1.Bd5 line.
EDIT: I did that, sending it in now.
