Thanks for the encouragement.  As John Warboys pointed out, Roger Bailey 
in fact produced some containing Norwich long ago (in Composition 501), 
similar to the one we rang in Bristol (but not identical).

All these out-of-course extents mix overworks.  A few have three different 
overworks - these work by combining the in-course Cu/Cl and Bo/Ne splices 
with an out-of-course splice.

What is the recommended way to make raw data (big files of search results) 
available on this list?
