Well, I hate to jump into this touchy subject, but since I'm one of the ones 
that asked about it so long ago, I have a few points, which I consider fact in 
the music world:

1.  The "Jazz font" is standard.  You may not like it, some particular jazz 
composers may not have used that style, but mostly, it's standard.

2.  Lots of people like it.  I like it.  You don't have to, of course, but that 
doesn't really change anything unless the "you" in question is the developer, 
not doing something because they don't like it.  Of course, that's just the 
breaks in open source sometimes, unfortunately.

Well, I guess that was only two points.  Anyway, it's important to remember the 
differences between personal opinion and the desires of the majority.  I think 
an open-source jazz font, and support for using it in LilyPond, would be a good
