What I am imagining is the system like the following, where you
"stitch" together your own symbol from a set like this:


(Sorry, poor res. I'll see if I can find something better.)

(Oh, on a tangent, jazz articulations:
http://www.jazzfont.com/noframes/jazzchar.htm )

That's a very poor image, I'll try to find something better. But the
idea is that instead of Lilypond dictating "oh, you have this chord, I
will typeset it for you in style x, y, or z", you instead say, "I want
a C, with the MAJ symbol as a superscript/subscript, with numbers
going up like this" etc.



These fonts seem to contain all the symbols that lilypond could use.
(I'm not picky about font _style_, as long as they're reasonably.done
and sans-serif.)

Thank you.
