Hi everybody,

In the 1.3.x stages of Lilypond, I developed a working jazz chord algorithm 

a) took everything that is halfway common practice into account
b) was relatively easily tweakable if one has another idea of "common
c) was relatively long and clumsy, sadly, because of my lack of knowledge
   about Scheme.
d) was outdated the day I got it finished, because the interface changed.

The thing got lost & forgotten. To get some work done, I subsequently 
accepted broken jazz chords as God-given, and began adding happily to my 
exception list, which is now a couple pages long.

I could dig out the old code and resend it, maybe you can do something with 
it (take the algo, change the details, or beautify). Sadly, I cannot do it 
due to lack of time.

Sorry for responding so late.

All the best,
