```That's brilliant Richard!
I ideally wondered if what you have done would be possible and came up with
the same base method. I thought you ought to be able to do something with
long and short leads to get round the parity problem but didn't get as far
as working anything out that might work let alone assembling a composition.
It suppose it's a bit similar to how this composition (
https://bb.ringingworld.co.uk/comp.php?id=874) works although there the
long and short leads are for joining / q-set reasons rather than parity.
