At first I thought it would be fairly easy, because chord::inner-name-jazz
and chord::inner-name-american are just modified chord::inner-name-banters.
But the other routines don't generate just strings, they actually do actual
typesetting with the sharps and flats. I'd say a good start would be to just
leave the logic alone and make the changes in the output part of the code

Let me have a go once 1.7.10 is out. One time I'll install a development
version. The problem I have is that the Lilypond versions I'm running here
are considerably souped-up versions of stable Lilyponds, changes go in
depending on the task at hand. That's why I upgrade so rarely.

That will surely work.

Sorry, I couldn't smell that ;-) You know, I scratch when I itch -- means,
when the output doesn't please me, I tweak the program. Over the last time, I
wrote mostly choral works, with or without instruments, so chords didn't
bother me. Now I have some jazz arrangements to do, of tunes written by one
of my predecessors as director of the band I'm directing now, with constructs
like G7 b9 b13 / F, and of course, with the old Lilypond, that did not work
so well. So I spent eight hours on writing a Scheme routine that DID it.
Tonight, I printed out my arrangement, and I was so happy to finally see on
the paper what I envisioned, easily transposed and all. It was already a
complex issue, with trumpet, 2x saxophone, 4x vocal, piano, guitar, bass &
drums. Intricate funk-jazz stuff. I'm glad it's off my desk. So I guess the
elation from that made me take Han-Wen's letdown a bit hard. But I'm really
glad that you'll try to help.
