> I can remember ringing Double Stedman Doubles many years ago where 
every single place was rung twice and every double place was rung four 
times.  Half turns were whole pulls and whole turns comprised four 
blows at lead, two blows in seconds place and then another four blows 
at lead.  In hunting in and out every place was a whole pull and of 
course double up for everything in 5ths.  John Cummins

That's called Orpheus Doubles and is rung quite regularly in the UK - 
I've even rung a quarter peal of it!
