I agree.

Hey Marky, I agree again.  Some results looking into this are on my website 
(http://ringing.8bit.co.uk/music.html), but I expect you know that already.

A few days ago Glint was expressing a fondness for wraps backstroke -> 
handstroke.  Whilst I find this a bit puzzling, it made me think about 
treble-dodging cyclic methods again.  Ah, the good old days. A bit of 
playing around and this property is present a lot in decent simple methods 
with managable falseness. Here are three examples, all with glide symmetry. 
The first two are varients (the first feels familiar - I may have mentioned 
it before but can find no record), the third is a bit different.
