Indeed so, however I was responding to Mr Lee, who was questioning the
value of individual methods! This is really a bespoke composition for
Rob: I undertook it since it seemed to have very worthwhile aims, but

As for Henley, well I suppose the fact that we are leadhead splicing
means the 5678 work is going to get broken up anyway most of the time
(although admittedly I have repeated plain leads of Henley in the
