> In the case of Kent Treble Bob Major, the extent with the tenors together
is 8448 (certainly as a three-part),

What does "extent" mean in this case? If it means "maximum possible true
length", then I don't believe this is correct. For example,

8,544 Kent Treble Bob Major
23456  M  B  W  H
25634  2     1  1
26354        1  2
23564     5  1  2
36524        2
34625  2        1
42356  2     2
Repeat twice.
Contains all 24 each 56s and 65s, 86 little bell rollups at the back, and

linguistic taboos, the Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act was passed
on the day in 2004 that Vice President Dick Cheney got into an
argument with Senator Patrick Leahy on the Senate floor and
Cheney told the senator to be fruitful and multiply, but not in
those words."               -- Steven Pinker, _The Stuff of Thought_
