I think 'current thinking' is that more types of calls or more calls are 
good, *provided that* the result is (a) better [by whatever criteria you 
use] or (b) more fun to ring.

I'm sure the majority of people who enjoy half-lead bobs and big singles 
would agree that an unmusical composition of Rutland with eight types of 
call is still not worth ringing.  :-)
