 All the work.  A palindrome.
 Contains 640 B,S,R,C,N; 576 Y,P; 480 L; 128 Z; 64 X.
 Z = R or L; X = Y or P.
 For optimum method balance and distribution, call all leads of Z as L,
 one lead of X as Y and one lead of X as P (gives 640 B,S,R,C,N and
 608 L,Y,P; 140 c.o.m.; 96 cru’s).
 106 cru’s may be obtained by calling all leads of Z as R (although this
 adversely affects method balance and distribution).
