Hmm!  Good idea.  If you don't mind, I'll pop this in as IVa.  Or
maybe, I need a page of exercises about getting hands to move in
various relative ways? (Contrary, parallel,?)

I was working on another batch of exercises, which are a progressive
series concerning rhythmic complexity.  The notes stay the same, but
the rhythm varies.  Like Excerise VI(a,b,c), only much more so.
