Hmm...  Historical (hysterical?) reasons.  I am converting from music
which has been written out using 8th notes.  I am using this as an
intermediate notation on our way to having people read Vaticana square
neume notation.  There's no good reason for it anymore, so I will
switch to stemless quarter notes, in order to fool the slurs.
