I'd rather propose to say something like:

\filled-box xext (pair of numbers) yext (pair of numbers) blot (number)
Draw a box with rounded corners of dimensions xext and yext, where
blot is the roundness of the box corners.
Example:
\filled-box #'(-.3 . 1.8) #'(-.3 . 1.8) #0
which gives a box extending horizontally from -0.3 to 1.8 and
vertically from -0.3 up to 1.8, with sharp corners.

Which is shorter and, at least in my opinion, just as informative.

I'd change the ending from ", with sharp corners" to ", with corners formed from a circle of diameter 0 (ie sharp corners)". Other than that, I agree that the same information is conveyed in fewer words. I'll update the docs.

I agree... but I'm not certain that we define "units of staff space" anyway. I'm looking for a good place right now.
