    I am not sure that it is worth it. With \alternative being a
    used construct, this is going to be pretty disruptive…

    Maybe it's possible to introduce other syntax, like another
    spelling for
    \alternative, or just using \volta without an \alternative block
    are reasons why this doesn't produce volta brackets right now, but
    was a back-and-forth in that respect and I don't recall how it
    ended up

I can't currently run 2.23.10 on my Mac, so I can't try it,

What is the problem you are encountering? I think that normally, it should work on all 64-bit-capable Macs.
