Greetings everybody,
Hi Andrew, sorry for the delay.

I've seen you've added this to the LSR and you did well; I replaced
your snippet by a more complete one as

However, I am completely clueless about this "edge-width" property. I
can see that such a property has indeed existed, and has been renamed
to edge-widen in 2002, then turned into bracket-flare in 2004, and...

And it seems that it no longer applies to pedal brackets! In the
following snippet, the first and second bracket look the same:

\relative c'' {
  \set Staff.pedalSustainStyle = #'bracket
  c1\sustainOn c c\sustainOff c
  \override Staff.PianoPedalBracket #'bracket-flare = #'(0.5 . 0.5)
  c1\sustainOn c c\sustainOff c

Is it a bug, anyone?
