  I deliberately used the term 'arrangement', as others have previously used 
  the s5/s4 as a means of joining together the 5678/8765 courses. I like the 
  transition between the 8765's and the 23564/35642 courses and 
  felt it fit in particularly well with your plan, from the point of view of 
  minimising calls, increasing whole courses and spreading the music.

  It's subjective at this stage - on eight, I'd aim to prioritise (as much as 
  possible) 5678/8765 runs before little bell runs, simply because these form a 
  pure tetrachord which I find more musically satisfying. Of course 1234's/4321's 
  also do but it's not productive to aim for a substantial quantity of these.
  I do agree with your comment about the part courses of non-LB 56/65 courses. 
  They are there more due to the headache of trying to complete the jigsaw of blocks 
  as neatly as I could than anything else - I would happily have rejected some of 
  these part courses in favour of other stuff, and hopefully this plan can be optimised
