Well, yes, plans, yes... Lots of plans... Only plans, though.
I have been working on this very slowly... For now all I have done is to
draw a Tab-clef and start bugfixing the typesetting when the number of
staff lines is even

Wouldn't it be simpler to consider each line of tab to be a staff of a
single line? I would love to have lines and numbers for 5-string banjo music, but bends and stuff like that in the tab make no sense, because
they belong in the notation, not the tab.  The notation tells what music
sounds like, the tab is only fingering.
