No suggestions, but can't switching from Grandsire to New Grandsire 
be done with a call omitting a couple of changes.
Perhaps we just need one big method with all the place notations
and we can use calls which omit changes to get any touch we like.
If you allow false methods then just define a method which contains
all the possible extents/peals inside and omit the changes you don't
need. It might be silly to ring two methods with two names differing
only in the omitted changes in the composition.
