It would be possible to write new versions of the drawing routines
starting at draw_staff(). I.e. draw_staff() would check if the staff was
to be drawn as a tab and then call new drawing functions. I believe the
drawing routines could just be using the same (normal notation) data
that we have and certain things (such as beaming and stems - I am
assuming they are put along the top just above the staff with the stems
descending into the staff lines?) could be modelled on what is done for
normal notation.
So, in brief, it would involve writing the chain of drawing routines
from draw_staff down.
