Partial wish list of font character additions

Partial wish list of font character additions:

1) A flat and a sharp symbol made for imbedding in text instead of in music
that would have the proper base line and size for in-text usage. This would
be handy for text markup where you often need to specify these symbols,
currently you have to do a \raise and font adjustment to use "#" or "b"
symbols in text that flows.
(or possibly a generalized markup function that will automatically
resize/raise/lower any feta music character for use in a text context. for
example: "\asText \sharp" would render a sharp symbol baseline, height, etc.
as though it were an ordinary capital letter)

2) A thin line triangle (commonly used for chords of major seventh)

3) A "half diminished" symbol (circle with forward slash on top) sometimes
used to designate the naturally occuring m7b5 chord (7th degree) of a major

(please disregard my ignorance if the following 3 items already exists or
are better done without fonts)

4) A thin line circle

5) A thin line square

6) Two thin line rectangles of the "golden ratio" one horizontal one
