I'm sure the signs for accidentals are used in the musical scores, even
in Germany :)

Using those signs in a text file would be a new thing.  Maybe
accidentals should be written before the notes, as in the score (♯f),
but that could complicate parsing and conversion to the new format.  On
the other hand, it would be better to make a choice that's more natural
for musicians, not for programmers.
