Thanks Peter - appreciated.

Even leaving aside the value judgement of "worthwhile", what's going on
with the names?

Look at the method called here "London V Bob"...this is said to be St
Augustine Doubles with notation 1 at the leadend, ie &,1 = 14523.
 The Central Council method collections call this "Newbury Differential
Bob Doubles" though, with RW references 66/463 and 10/322.

So what happened to the name "London V Bob"?  Where did this come from,
and where did it disappear to? What in today's collections does Lampton
preserve its name and 1955 RW reference, but Newbury/London's first
reference is 1966? And why don't the method collections at the least try
to list other names which methods have previously been known by?  Hmm.
