A year ago, I proposed to use the simple, minimalistic \t keyword that
is both short and easy to type, plus is can mean aither "times",
"tuplet" or whatever. This is actually what I've been using since
then, and I have to say I'm very happy with it.

Maybe we should just explain as a commonprop how to easily create an
alias for the \times keyword, so that the users can be free to choose
whatever they want.
The problem is (as was discussed in that thread that we are repeating more and more of here) that you cannot create any such alias, at least not if you want to
keep the syntax 2/3. You can certainly make an alias with syntax
\t #2 #3 {music} but that's not very attractive.
