There were a few systems (such as CP/M) that optimized (or attempted to) 
interleave depending on use.  So, "boot" tracks were 1:1, "directory" 
may have been 2:1 and user data 3:1.

Schemes varied widely.  One or two even interleaved side-to-side in 
addition to "skewing track-to-track.  Obviously written by a programmer 
tasked with the job of "Let's see how fast we can get data on or off 
this thing".
