FWIW I agree - What gets me is some theoritician declaring "the parent
method" How nice it would be (?) if there always was a a 'parent method'
but then again, one can be a parent yet still produce lots of little

Ironically Plain Bob Minor did not exist until a form of Grandsitre Doubles
was applied to the treble's leads of Plain Hunt on 6 but it is not the case
that Grandsire Doubles came about as being an extension of Bob Minimus
