Thinking of similar functions, like \relative and \harmonic, perhaps we
should just name the function to \dead.  Then we'd have

<c \dead e g>4 or \dead {c d e f g a b}

This also brings more distinction between \deadNotesOn and \dead; one of my
concerns was potential confusion between \deadNote and \deadNotesOn.  What
do you think?
