This article shows how to make the through "V" joint a' la' Romanillos.
The blind "V" as used by Hauser is well illustrated in Richard Brune's plan of the 1937 guitar but I'm not aware of any instructions out there on making it.
The main difference in the final form of these is that the the peghead veneer joining surface stands proud of the fretboard joining surface in the Hauser where in the through joint they intersect at the nut area.
The modified bridle joint was used by Martin and others for 3 piece necks all during the 19th century and is actually a bit more complex than the other two. All are quite elegant though.

Still, I see no demerits in a fine scarph joint, either. I like a fine scarph joint.
In all the discussion of the V joint, I think that we should not infer that a scarph joint is a "poor" joint. I'm not saying that this is what is happening, but it could easily go that way.
