Unusual double.

3 (3) 5 (5)

5 is natural.

After this start to the auction, what should opener's double mean?

It seems that opener will not have a penalty double very often.

Also, a Lightner double seems unlikely. Would it ask for a club or a diamond?

It occurred to me that an alternative meaning for the double maybe that it should show a good hand, in context, for diamonds. The preempter will rarely be able to commit to the six level but partner maybe willing to bid 6 with this information.

Does anyone play anything like this?
