Well, probably no-one, especially on a heavy tenor; I was trying to show 
that you can't expect it to work on, for example, a list of lead-
head/lead-end pairs, even though the relation between a LH and its LE is 
usually a bunch of 2-bell swaps. Perhaps a better example:

123456 gives 00000[0]
165432 gives 04321[0]
