yeah, but if i have a triplet of halfnotes, than those should take up the same
time
as 2 half notes...just like a triplet takes up 2 quarter notes..
So if i do

soprano = \notes c''2 c2
alto = \notes \times 2/3 { a'2 a'2 a'2 }

it should just come out with the soprano line playing 2 half notes in a bar,
and the
alto line playing 3 half notes in the bar, taking up exzctly the same amout
of
beats as the 2 half notes. It works fine with the s in between the two notes,
but if
i do \time 2/3 {} it puts a bracket ontop of the 2 half notes, and that makes it
seem to the player like it's supposed to be a triplet, while i had written it
as the
alto line to be a triplet and not the alto line, which should use normal
notation..
so is it a lilypond error?
