The problem i see here is that some of the fine-tuning is not only
about finding good values for the parameters, but also determining
what parameters should be used at all, and how will they interact with
other versions of the glyphs and general architecture.  However, your
concerns are valid; i've modified the schedule so that it explicitely
says "August: fine-tuning the shapes".

I know nothing about any Canadian ancestors of mine, but you never know... :)
How did you like my article about LilyPond's weak sides and it's
future development?  Do you think that my concerns are valid?
