Unmetered quotes...

  A  very recurrent problem, and a very frustrating one too,
  in  early  music,  if  that  it sometimes happens that the
  composer  wanted  a  quick  sequence of notes, but doesn't
  want  to  mark them as grace notes. So, he just makes them
  128th  and  puts  a  small  sequel.  Now  this is really a
  frustrating problem to compensate using spacing rests (the
  music  has  to  look  exactly  like  the  originals, so no
  tweaking  of  the  note  values!).  So this is a feature I
  suggest :

  r4 b, e2^\mordent ~ |
  e4.  \rap8{[d64 c  b,  a,  g,]} \grace g, a,4^\mordent ~ [a,8. b,16] |

  The notes in beetween 'rap' shall then be calculated as if
  they  were  a  big 8th note (rap*8*) but would 'look' like
  64th notes.

Best regards,
