>...3 lines, with 2 shoots on each...

One author on the subject (name forgotten, article not at hand) says
`let 'em grow, I get a fine harvest that way' (paraphrase) but goes on
to admit that he has never tried culling the shoots, so he wouldn't
know if it's better to do so. Other authors recommend culling. One
suggestion I like is letting three go, when they're a third of the way
up the support, let three more go, repeat. I plan to try this.

>...making a plant split into 2 main branches by snipping off the top...

The plant won't necessarily split at the `snip point', but snipping
will encourage side branches to grow.
