Up to this point, Mark, your point of view had a sort of twisted logic, 
but here you seem to be descending into the land of madness.  According to 
what you are saying, a change of method is not a "change of method" unless 
is occurs at a lead end, or some other "conventional" point.  So if I ring 
9 changes of Cambridge and then change to Bristol, starting at the half 
lead, that is not a "change of method"?   Uh?
