I am reminded of a major Mother cable cut in the 70's. This cut
involved oh 8-10 cables. Then, you had 600-1200 (or maybe bigger)
pair cables running between CO's. They were not color-coded... 
The splicer would grab a pair, any pair, from each cable, splice
together, grab another pair......

Then two CO men at the ends would 'buzz out' each and every
pair to figure which went where, and mark it down. Of course,
if^H when they made a mistake....

And we wonder why it's so hard to get accurate circuit data.
