Yes, but nobody agrees on what that intermediate pitch *is* do they?
And Arab pop music really does use equally tempered synthesizers
however much the purists may object.

Let's assume it works fine because otherwise standard notation would
break as well.

Now, my question is, why is that clever workaround for the Arabic
half-flat symbol in there when it could be replaced globally?  The
documentation doesn't give any case where you'd want to use the
Tartini half-flat.  In my impetuosity I've created a new init file
with code modeled on, and attached it to this message.
