that is problematic; I don't want to support this route. Try to find
someone to code metafont for the shapes, and have a look at the font
itself (cd mf ; make out/feta20.dvi ; xdvi out/feta20 ) -- we support
quite a number of head shapes already.

don't do that. The signature can be discovered through
get_property("keySignature") within any engraver.
