* The "longa notes" bug (cp.

 case statement and handle it identically as "default" style; also
 replace "case" statement by completely different way of dispatch to gain
 speed, e.g. with a hashtable or alist or...), which goes beyond my
 scheme skills.  Any help from scheme/guile gurus is appreciated!

Attached patch should fix this one and theoretically even *speed up* glyph name lookup, since it removes obsolete scheme code. Instead of trying to fix the scheme code, I added a new longa note head to the feta font. It looks exactly like a brevis head, but with a stem like quarter note. Maximae are not handled by this patch, but I actually have not ever seen a Maxima in modern font, so this is a generally open issue to be handled separately.

May I apply this patch?
