Err, easy, no?

"A method is said to have Plain Bob-type lead-heads if it can be started 
from a change such that the treble leads at the lead-end changes, and 
the lead-heads and lead-end rows all occur in a course of Plain Bob."

Then again, perhaps not - my tongue was definitely in the vicinity of my 
cheek ;-)

That puts you miles ahead of me, then :-) As I said, I lurk on here and 
was just curious about what the "rules" being referenced were, from a 
brief glance it's clearly an arcane area - it must be easy to 
misinterpret or miss one of the rules, so I can understand the desire to 
replace them with something better. More power to your collective elbows.
