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).
