I'll read your docs carefully (my first impression is: it's
absolutely stunning), but in the meantime I want to let you
know that I'm working on white mensural notation, and I've implemented
a preliminary version of coloratio (i.e. black notes), including
ligaturae. these patches are not yet submitted (first try was
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/lilypond-devel/2010-11/msg00212.html
), but I'll do so soon.
meanwhile please take a look at
http://wiki.lilynet.net/index.php/Benkop_projects
(it's a bit outdated; I'll update after my patches make to the
official repository.)
it's great to have other people concerned with ancient notation!
