## Laconic family

I don't have a subroutine for computing the optimal patent val and no time to write one now. If anyone has a second, would someone mind working out what it is for laconic temperament, which eliminates 2187/2000? I think it'll be 21p but I'm not sure.

Thanks

If added to the optimal patent val page, it would be

2187/2000: 21edo 5&16 161.799

with an optimal patent val of 21. However, it has a badness figure much higher than the other commas listed (it really only starts to make sense in the 7-limit.)
