It's interesting that you should mention that: that actually reminds
me of one of my specific issues with Feta, namely that the curved
centre line of its treble clef _does_ make it look to me as if it's
leaning over backwards. Gonville's straight-backed version feels
much more balanced to me.
That would be a bug.  How many degrees would you need to rotate it to
get it straight, in your opinion?

Thanks to the great work on the SVG backend, I was able to do a test.

I rotated the clef by 1, 2.5, and 5 degrees.

Surprisingly, I could see small differences.  I'd think somewhere
between 1 and 2.5 degrees would be about right.  I like the 2.5 degrees
best at the top of the clef, but I think the tail needs to be adjusted
a little bit to look right at 2.5 degrees.

Even the 1 degree rotation appears better balanced IMO.
Hello Carl,

I played a bit with the mf sources, and changing dowstroke_dir
from unitvector (14,-75) to (11,-75) seems to be a good choice, what do you think?
