I prefer methods that don't give the impression that I think the stays are mostly loaded in tension. I do like the wraped method on traditional frames I see.

I probably pay more attention to how the whole area comes together than where the stays attach per se. There is a lot going on in that neighbourhood. And a lot of ways to handle it if lugs aren't used, since they tend to take a lot of the questions out of the picture.
