Oh now come on. Bristol is perhaps the simplest surprise method you could
possibly ask for, extension-wise, since you can extend the thing
indefinitely just by applying its overall structure to larger sets of
bells! None of this faffing about with sections and what have-you. Methods
like Bristol, Plain Bob and so on, should really be the *first* methods you
consider when trying to define some sort of extension guidelines (not that
I think that's a good idea anyway, but regardless).

If the consensus is that Bristol is just 'too difficult', then I'd have
said that was reason enough to throw in the towel!
