7x7 Endgames, Reverse sente basics

There are two kinds of gote moves: those that prevent a sente move by the opponent (called reverse sente), and those that do not. The first kind sometimes (but not always) gives an extra profit. (You can peek at http://senseis.xmp.net/?WhenToPlayAReverseSente for details if you want to.) Here A is a 4 point gote play, and B is a 3 point reverse sente play. Which one is better?
