I will work on the ligature stuff, but I'm quite slow;
regarding other shapes, I have to look very thoroughly
through the existing gregorian support and your stuff.
What I like best are the Ars subtilior flags; however,
that is a part which confuses me quite a bit.  In particular,
what I've added as coloratio / black mensural notation
support is really just the heads, the flagging must be
hacked around as I wrote in
