    Yes, ignore that comment on my part -- it was the fruit of over-active but
    inadequately-informed thinking on the part of a novice, and Elaine Keown
    already pointed out the error. I re-read the book I had been reading, and
    it said that the Leningrad is viewed by all to be a *good* examplar of the
    ben Asher tradition, but that Allepo is considered by many to be the best.

    Ah, so if one can just get a decent copy, that would be a good source.
