I do not like to do this, but I'm going to have to ask someone else on the
bug list to evaluate this. I cannot distinguish what's going on in the midi
file to tell whether midi is behaving the way Hans Aberg says, nor do I
know exactly how articulate.ly is supposed to behave. It does appear to me
that \prall, if it's behaving the way Hans Aberg says it is, is behaving
the way I would expect an upper pralltriller, or upper mordent, to behave.
Is Hans Aberg requesting a new feature?

Would someone else on the bug list please take over this report?

Thank you,
