Issue 512: abc church modes

New issue report by gpermus:
When using a church mode like E Dorian, ABC expects the pitches to be
interpreted relative to the key signature of this mode, that is the two
sharps F# and C# in this case; abc2ly just interprets this mode as E major,
with four sharps F#, C#, G#, D# then. In other words, in ABC E Dorian, the
written notes C (resp. F) should be mapped onto C# (resp. F#), and the
others should be as written. But abc2ly also maps G (resp. D) onto G#
(resp. D#), and further writes the key signature E major instead of E
Dorian. (Example below.)

Example: The ABC input
T:abc2ly bugs
K:E Dorian
