I don't know the details, but I suspect that that (non-CC accepted)
peal of spliced Stedman Triples and Caters rung at Basingstoke in the
1980s was such that it was more challenging for the "numpties" in the
triples than a lot of the peals of Bob Triples that do meet your
standards of complexity are.
