There certainly is a lot of evidence that Ashkenzi minhagim com more
from E"Y than Bavel. 

But do we know of any chochomim that went from
anywhere in the Middle East to Germany? 

I.e., ok, even if we accept
that either there was a third school, or it came from E"Y -- do we yet
know *how* it got to Northern Europe? 

(Or perhaps the answers are in
articles that Haym Soloveitchik or David Berger wrote? (And, if so, does
anyone have any citations?)
