I doubt there's a lot to be gained, provided the ignition is working
properly. You can get ones with 3 or even 4 electrodes, and I give you good
odds that they mostly only make 1 spark... About the only thing I can think
would make a difference is that micro-scale differences in the mixture might
mean that one or another spark-path is more viable, which could have a
fractional (and minimal) difference to the spark timing.

my opinions are just that
