The generic approach has now been pushed to git


There's a generic styledNoteHeads music function that applies a note style
to music whether or not it's in a chord construct.

deadNotes and palmMute have been redefined to use the generic functions
instead of a specific function.

Please feel free to add aliases and flesh out NR 2 wherever special music
heads are used (crosses is one example; harmonics might be another).

But we're hoping to get one of the members of the tablature user community
to develop the tablature documentation once 2.13.4 is released.
