That was my norm many years ago. I overexposed Agfapan 25 and 100, underdeveloped in dilute Rodinal, then selenium toned to add contrast. Overexposure opened the shadows, underdevelopment precluded highlight blockage, and the selenium toner extended the straight line portion of the gamma curve. I toned via visual inspection aiming to print on Gallery grade 3. I underexposed the prints very slightly and toned them in selenium too. This had a similar effect on the prints... great tonal range, wide open shadows, wonderfully detailed highlights, and gorgeous print color to boot. Not speaking of my work... but tonality and acutance were spectacular, IMHO.
