I think that Werner was saying the feature request is to add a glyph to the
font.  But while we wait for that to happen, to add a drawn rectangle is a

The corners of the rectangle should *definitely* be rounded (all of LilyPond
engraving is rounded).  The standard radius is half of line-thickness.
