Interesting stuff! Long ago when I produced the below 5008 of PB8
(possibly the first normal length peal containing "the 384"?), I wondered
about the possibility of combining the 384 4-runs with all 576
combinations of 5678 in 5678 (and perhaps even in 1234 too). Better than
crus I reckon. This would in particular include the 1234s and 4321s. Is
it possible with reasonable methods, I wonder?
I also vaguely rememeber a composition of PB8 and LB8 containing 144cru
and all tenors together 4-runs at the back (and maybe front too?), which
deserves a mention in this context. Perhaps by Richard Pearce?
