Yes, of course that is true. I did not make it clear that in referring to peals of 7 or less containing extents "as far as is possible" I was talking only of the total changes. I did not mean to exclude such multi-extent blocks. Peals based on these still contain only the minumum number of repeats to get the length, which is the important thing.
