I like the idea of halving the number of MPPTs on the board, however does this mean the solar panels on opposite sides of the satellite are now connected directly in parallel? Is there any additional circuity preventing current flowing from an illuminated panel on one side of the satellite to its partner on the opposite?

Not yet, I find documents saying there should be, and others saying there doesn't need to be. I'm planning on doing some experimenting to find out what's the best solution.
