The RWP 10080 has sort of been published before.  His 5040 7 part No 1 
was published yonks ago.

The 10,080 consists of the No1, and its exact reversal.  A part of the 
original is joined to a part of the reversal by a pair of singles.  By 
joining a part with its reversal you would end up in rounds at the end 
rather than at a cyclic part-end.  But by omitting a pair of sixes with 
their associated calls (sps) in the reversal the partends are shifted 
and a full 7 part is realised.  Plainly losing 2 sixes per part is not 
desirable!! - so in one part alone you single in at the same point an 
entire plain course (the 7 lots of 2 sixes otherwise missed out).
