Thanks, your verbal description already has made clear what you want
to do.  I would rather like to see scanned images from real, printed

It can be realized quite easily with a macro: You have two
intersecting vectors (in and out), and you want to `connect' them with
a circle, where the circle's radius doesn't change with the font size.

However, some objects like the violin clef must be partly rewritten
since we currently use FontForge to remove the overlaps.  This is not
hard but tedious.  On the other hand, we would get rid of the
FontForge bugs related to overlapping removal, so it might be a useful
route to go.
