Roy and Karen,
I find that graded Oriental Seagull is the nearest thing to the old Zone VI Brilliant that I have found to this point. It's normal tone is very similar and it tones very nicely with selenium. I can't say about gold toning since I haven't tried that. I develop mine in Zone VI print developer which is very near Dektol. However it seems to support shadows better then Dektol. Normal dilution is 1-3.
I have also used the Oriental Seagull VCFB paper. It is a nice variable contrast paper. However it does not have the depth that graded Seagull has.
