I'm leaning towards the cut and roll method as that is what I read about before.
I'll try thr bearing slide deal 1st before I cut the seat post internally.
Heat as a last resort as it's my intention to leave the og finish on the bike undisturbed.
You can sometimes score (cut almost all the way through) with a hack saw blade inside the seat post, but that is like escape from Alcatraz...
If you want to avoid heat, warm the frame (keep it in the house) and use the cold blast inside the seat tube to shrink it a bit. You may need to do that and then add the PB, let is soak, and then go back in a week with another cold blast.
Basically, it is case-by-case and what works once may not work the next time.
