If you are not tired of coding brackets then I suggest that you snoop into 
ottava :-)

My idea (the simplest) is to use the piano pedal engraver to draw ottavas (so 
that ottava spanners are actually implemented as "ottava-pedals". When thinking 
back on the old harpsichords this is perhaps not as silly as it first sounds).

In this case, all you have to do is to
- allow for dashed mixed-style pedals (don't remember if this is already 
- mirror the bracket (upside down) when XxxPedalLineSpaner's direction is "up"
- add a "ottava-pedal".

Otherwise (in case someone don't concider ottava-pedals "clean") some new grobs 
should probably be added... Perhaps lots of your pedal-bracket-code should be 
moved to a more general place so that others could use it as well... Perhaps 
you could even fix the allignment bug of voltas this way?

I know that it is bad to spam this list with ideas without contributing with 
anything... But, well, in the summer, then I'll be back!
