Hi Simon,

How should it be defined what the shown duration is?
Always 2/3 of the duration* if the duration is of the form 3*2^n?
Or the next smaller power of 2?
Would d25 or d15 also be allowed?
This looks like a very mathematically and programming-wise inspired
feature request to me. Some syntactic sugar for a rare use case which is
much more understandable if written as 16*2/3.
Cheers,
Joram
* I am talking about the corresponding number in the LilyPond syntax, so
1/duration to be precise.
