RW: "I imagine that this arose because it was usual at one time to 
use 'natural course ends' for composition purposes, and it is 
interesting to note that 'coursing order' is not mentioned until page 
109 of 'Ropesight'"

But surely this doesn't hold water - even if you're using natural 
course ends wouldn't you expect a wrong in Bob Major do bring up the 
same course end and a wrong in Triples - i.e. 52436?
The only people the "H=n, W=n-1, M=n-2" system really makes sense for 
are the "bob callers" who are paying no attention to the way individual 
calls affect the order of the bells.
