Stephen also called a composition of Bob Royal in July with the same
device, to get 144 CRUs amongst other things.

I had a go at a composition of Bob Caters along these lines; it's a
bit more messy in that a bell has to lead for four blows (and the
dodges are in 2-3 and 4-5) but I did get all 384 5-bell runs not
involving the treble into a peal length, which isn't exactly trivial
in some commonly rung methods.
