Thanks for working on that. I'm certainly not an expert in these
matters, but in regards to the odd rythm example, I do think the new
version looks better and is more readable than the old one. And as
long as it works correctly in the regular case, I don't believe we
have to worry that much about these odd ones. It is always possible to
tweak them directly if necessary.
