        * lily/ (brew_flexa):
        make flexa parts of ligatures look more similar to square parts

        * lily/include/mensural-ligature.hh: explanatory comments

Hi Jürgen (and all),

I've played a bit with flexa shape within a ligature;
this is in the attached patch.

I began experimenting with punctus divisionis as a new type of barline.
My first try was introducing one new type ("."),
but then I couldn't position it.
Is there a way of accessing the previous note in the barline code?
Then I'd know where to move the dot.
The second try was introducing a default case:
the glyph string is interpreted as a number,
and the dot is moved accordingly.
I have two problems with this:
I couldn't hack default-break-barline in output-lib.scm
(I know almost nothing of Lisp and nothing else about scheme),
so I get a warning for all puncti divisionis,
and I have a big space between the previous note and the dot.
Can I control that space somehow?

I reviewed the facsimiles I have, and found that
- a punctus divisionis can be at the end of a line
  (and then the next line begins as if nothing happened),
  so it can really be implemented as a new type of barline;
- augmenting dots within ligatures are generally placed after the note,
  except first notes of flexae, which have it above.
  I'll try to sort out this issue next.
