There are well documented problems in getting a "sensible" extent of
treble-dodging major. The only examples seem to fall into three camps:

1) Monkey (eg Derwent variants)

2) Forced (Yorkshire with constant half-lead singles)

3) Esoteric (Ander's half-lead spliced -

If the requirement is relaxed to require merely a true double extent of
treble-dodging major (eg Bristol, spliced, etc), are there any tricks
that can be used to easily achieve this?

This may not be of mere academic interest.
