Oh dear, I wasn't expecting people to read all the way through to the end.

Exactly. But, if you did that, would you want to include an explicit dictum
to exclude one-lead methods?

Might make a good service touch Don...
But yes, the multi-extent block is the natural home of the one-lead method,
and this is the context the subject was raised in. In a peal of spliced
Minor, why can't we ring the 6th's place version of an a-group method? Is
there really a solid fundamental reason why this is absolutely not on?

What exactly is the difference that makes them "more different" Don? Is it
just the truth implications of ringing a plain lead? Bearing in mind the
lead is the course, this seems identical to a normal method - you can't ring
a plain course of a method without returning to your starting point. Is
there anything else?
