Many of us who use chord symbols in our scores find value in having 'pedal'
as a chord symbol type, which is simply a single unison pitch given by the
chord's root. Both Finale and Musescore successfully export 'pedal'  as a
<kind> data type of a <harmony> element in musicxml files.

The chordkind_dict variable in the musicxml2ly in my Lilypond installation
file has the 'pedal' entry commented out, which I modified to what the
commented out line basically hints at:
'pedal': ':1'
That modification, along with modifying  ignatzekExceptionMusic in the
chord-modifiers-init file to include
<c >-\markup \super {Pedal} has given me added functionally in both
recognizing a 'pedal' chord type when importing musicxml , and in having
'pedal' available in the Chordnames context. Would anyone see value in
having this reflected in the main repository?
