Marc, this is really reaching.

A generation might, conceivably, be enough time for the appearance
of some double-limbed monsters. No argument there.

But a generation isn't -- a thousand years aren't -- enough time
for the replacement of, apparently, every major life form on the
planet with a double-limbed version, plus the rise and fall of a
civilization of double-limbed ... whatever the Vanished People are.
It just won't wash. Any theory that identifies the Bleen system
with the Urth system has to allow a very very VERY long time for
it to reach the condition it's in at the time of the Short Sun
