Good question - to be honest I re-used some old code and didn't look at 
it very closely first. I think the reason was probably because I 
excluded sectional place notations not of the form -P- or P-Q. I did 
find the equivalent method with a final section of 36-12, but this 
introduces E falseness over and above the B, so I dropped it.

No real reason for that constraint though, so I might run the search 
again to see what else I find. Good spot Philip.

That one doesn't appear to have the "meet all the bells other than 
course/after bell in PB coursing order" property.
