A new accidental for entering natural notes would be useful.

In English, this would be 'n', as in 'bn4' or 'gn2'.

These would have exactly the same effect as 'b4' or 'g2',
but would be easier to debug.

If the user is entering or editing music in the key of F,
or some other key where B is normally flat, it is often
not clear if 'b4' was intended to be B-natural, or if
someone just forgot to flat it.

If the note is written as 'bn4', the note was clearly
meant to be B-natural.

But if you enter b4 in F major, you'll get a natural typeset, so there can be no confusion. It seems like you're effectively proposing that b4 is a b natural I've entered accidentally, but bn4 is one I've entered deliberately. How would Lily show the difference?
