I don't think it does.  What does it actually achieve. 
Suppose I do an exhaustive search of ordinary length 
tenors-together peals of (say) Cornwall.  Assuming the list 
of compositions was very long (as I guess it would be), I 
would probably extract a few that looked pleasing and 
publish them and ditch the rest.  How does knowing that I've 
done this help anyone else?
