[r-t] New Bristol Major composition

Hi Rob,

I think it's an excellent idea, and allows the total number of 4-runs in 
a tenors-together peal of Bristol to be pushed to a new high.

I like your 5056 - better than the composition rung at Westbury since it 
has no run of more than two consecutive calls. It is not strictly a 
"no-duffers" composition since it has a half-course in the coursing 
order 54263, which I don't think generates any runs, but I suspect that 
the total music counts are higher than any pure no-duffers arrangements.

I haven't finished my no-duffers exploration of this new field, but when 
I have I shall publish the best results as "Series 7". I think there is 
also scope for even higher 4-run counts by allowing a back-bell rollup 
count somewhere in between the 72 and 96 benchmarks. We'll see!
