Do I have to use two separate linear pattern features to do a bidirectional linear pattern?

Let's say I want to do a linear feature pattern- I choose the direction, easy.

 

If I want to make a pattern of the same feature in the opposite directions, as far as I can tell, I have to either:

1) Choose a different edge/axis/plane than the one used to define direction 1

2) Use the same edge/axis/plane, but in a separate feature

 

It seems ridiculous to me that you can't choose the same feature to define both directions within one linear pattern.
