## Accidentals

```Hi,

```
Maybe LilyPond needs a rewrite of the accidental handling, so that the current behaviour is made optional, and the usual way (from all the prints I generally use, which are about the early 1900's) the default.
```
```
The current behaviour of making a note natural before adding a sharp or flat in some cases, and also totally cancelling all the sharps or flats before adding one more or less, is quite rare. In fact, it just seems
```to possibly easier to code.

```
By the way, telling LilyPond to use \set Staff.printextranatural = ##f only 'hides' the natural. This means that LilyPond still calculates and allocates space for the natural, just not printing it.
