Germans have been using these to indicate barring in guitar
music for a long time.  What instrument is "don't arpeggiate"
supposed to refer to?

and what property should be set to turn it on? Something
like \property Staff.Arpeggio \override #'arpeggio-type = #'bracket ?,
and then use ordinary \arpeggio requests?
