Don is of course correct that not every lead realises the potential to
contain a run (because of the 8123, 7812, 6781 and reverses). However
assuming my count up is correct only 32 of the 168 leads don't contain one
of the 480 runs and on only 4 occasions in the peal do you get two
consecutive leads without one of the 480.
