Re: parenthesized phrase

Hi Mats (et al.),

If you want a parenthesis instead of a bracket, you can make two \markup{...} commands that produce the desired left and right parenthesis (for example using \music-glyph and an appropriate font size setting) and replace the right hand side of the settings \once\override BreathingSign #'text = ...
with the corresponding \markup{...}

EXCEPT... that automatically *thickens* the parentheses as well.  =\

Is there a way to stretch a glyph (such as a left parenthesis) VERTICALLY without increasing its thickness (or font size)? [This would, as one example, finally solve the issue of parenthesizing an entire chord -- something that has come up *several* times on the list in the past few months, including this morning.]
