```Both of these look very impressive - thanks for sharing!

Perhaps this is a suitable time for the following challenge (one that I
first considered about 20 years ago)!  Find a normal length peal
composition of major containing all the rows that contain a 4-bell run
(back, front *or internal*).

There are 1002 such rows (if my use of the inclusion-exculsion principle
is correct).  Can it be done in a way that anyone would want to ring?
