Someone in one of the forums here posted the following link to a website/page regarding a comparison between using a one-wire or the three-wire version. Whomever that was, "Thanks!". Anyway, although I find the explanation a bit convoluted and too wordy, the information on the webpage and website (other valuable data to be found there) is very informative. Because of what I learned there, I will always strive in the future, or recommend to other folks, to set-up an alternator with the three-wire method.
