The recent microtone improvements needed a much more flexible way to map
pitches onto symbols, and it seems superfluous to have two mechanisms for
setting glyphname at the same time.  It would be possible  to have a 
mechanism to set the alist based on the style property, but I thought it 
would be overkill.
