I'd be interested in seeing a proof of the answer to this.  Ander?
I remember arguing with Denis Carlisle about it, some 30-odd years ago.  I
had produced a 7-part 40320 of Plain Bob Major and asked him if he'd prove
it; but he said he didn't need to because it was bound to be false.
My feeling now is that Denis was right.  But I wonder . . . now, where did I
put that composition . . .
