It's a fine idea, as long as you don't want to have stems or beams.  You'll
want to remove the stem_engraver and the beam_engraver from places you use
Kievan square notes.

The glyphs look very nice.

I *think* you'll want to use fet_beginchar instead of beginchar.

I think that staff_space would be a better basis than stafflinethickness.
staff_space governs the overall size of things.

I believe that the origin is at the center of the note head.  That's the
basis under which I worked on the shape note heads.
