I'm not necessarily claiming any of these ideas are new --
merely that I've not seen them writen down before.  To be
honest, when I (re)discovered that particular composition of
Bacup, I was rather surprised that I hadn't seen it
elsewhere.  It's good to see that others have found this

I think that unfortunately, people often produce
compositions such as this but don't bother to publish them
as they only have "novelty" value.  (For all I know, you
have published this one, in which case it's a shame I'd not
noticed it.)  Hopefully having a list such as this will
encourage people to post such discoveries.
