 You're doing pretty good for a first
timer. Part-combine-iterator should do

       get_outlet()->get_property ("unisonStemmingProperty")

while determine-split-list should do

         ((chord-threshold (ly:parser-lookup parser 'chord-threshold))

          <code to use chord-threshold> )

Anyway, I'm trying to say: don't downplay your efforts, and post the
code, you always learn faster by learning from others. In the worst
event, we'll just ignore your patches, nothing lost :-)

(please translate : boondoggle , confab? :-)

We're gonna be at the 2005 Linux Audio Conference in Karlsruhe
(Germany). If there's any interest in a LilyPond
Birds-Of-a-Feather/tutorial session, drop us a note, then we'll
organise something.
