Ah, but even then, I think people are attempting to ring a 
'true' quarter: it's just that the definition of 'truth' 
that they are applying is different.  I imagine that most 
quarters of Little Bob Minor include each of the 480 
accessible rows at least twice and no more than three times. 
I don't imagine that there have been many quarters where 
some of the 480 accessible rows were (intentionally) 

Perhaps people should be allowed to ring a peal containing 
eleven 480s of Little Bob Minor?  Or ten 480s plus a 200.
