Sigh. Lightness of touch perhaps?

A peal of Grandsire and an extent of Grandsire are and should be synonymous.

(Yes I *know* a double-extent is still a peal. Does that matter? Not really, 
except possibly it adds to the beauty of the story even more. Allowing 
sub-extent peals of Triples spoils the story, forever.)
