Wow too.
Actually, there are things in Feta what I don't feel natural either.
For example: the caesura sign, the G-clef and the trill indication feels better for me in Gonville. Though the G-clef is I think a clear LilyPond watermark, so I would keep that one :)
The best would be if I could set up where to get which glyph from.

Currently the only way I've found to use that font with Lilypond is
to create a symlink mirror of the entire Lilypond data directory,
replace the 'fonts' subdirectory, and point $LILYPOND_DATADIR at the
altered copy. Would it be possible to introduce a command-line or
configuration option of some sort, to make it easier to select an
alternative font? (Or is there one I've missed?)
