What I think would be nice, and fully generic, is for the
accidental-assigning function to know the original name of the pitch
it's dealing with.  Then you could check if the name ends in "up" or
"down".  I don't know how to do this.

Otherwise, if you want the semantics to differ, you'll have to explain
what the difference is.
