one should in fact expect a relative sign because of the occurrence of 1',, 4 and its complex
conjugate in the same expression. 1\oreover, this must occur even in the K~err spacetinle,
where we have the real-intaginary separation instead of the parity separation. Such a
consideration makes clear the obvious advantage of treating the Teukolsky-Starohinsky
identities in terms of the fundamental GHP quantities. Beginning at this level and then
performing the separation of variables allows for no ambiguity in the resulting expressions.
