## Re: proposal: second style for quartertone accidentals

I agree %100 with the addition of accidentals with arrows. However, I also think that both, the standard 1/4 and 3/4 tone signs Lilypond already has and the new ones should both be accessible, and, ideally, within the same "notehead-style". Otherwise combining them in a single score would require one to be changing styles inside the score, which would not be ideal in that case.
Since we are into adding new accidental signs, I would also actually like the inclusion of arrows (up and down) not only the stadard accidentals Orm suggests, but also on the 1/4 and 3/4 sharp and flat signs lilypond already has. This would allow for a finer pitch resolution.
Here's a png of what i'm thinking. Pay no attention to the style though; this is secondary.

.. ideas?

Ah, OK. I very much vote yes. I've wanted the arrowed glyphs for quite
some time and would like to see them as part of the standard
distribution.
