[r-t] Almost palindromic methods

Some of the methods Andrew gives are amenable to ordinary extents -
Thorndon Bob for example. Without looking it up and confirming, this
method should have a 21-bob three part.
Some are allowed to have extents but I (and others) have not found any
yet, such as x16x16.34.16x16x16.34.12 (gp a) and others are not allowed
extents - Roncobello Place being one - *with lead end calls only*.
All plain methods do produce true 1440s with lead end calls however, if
the comp. has each treble-lead-row at hand and back.
The subjective question is - 'is it worth ringing an in-lead call to
obtain a 720 rather than a conventional 1440'?
Given that Roncobello Place was rung to a peal, the band missed a trick
in that they could have named two methods for the price of one.
Andrew asks what people might be interested in. I am certainly
interested in a convention lead-end call extent of the above method. My
software is not up to much more than finding simple three-parts.
