One thing just occurred to me.  If this option is going into the UI,

'(0 . 8)?

As a UI, numbers instead of intervals (possibly represented only by a
pitch in relation to c' like \transposition does) do not make much

The sole motivation for numbers would be to make them distinguishable
from music, and as we are piling options on, things will become
increasingly awkward to tell apart by type since we are indeed talking
about musical concepts all the time.

Regarding such user interface extensions, I think we should rather go in
the direction of
Using context modifications makes it reasonably straightforward to add
arbitrary named settings in arbitrary order on demand.

I can rebase that patch if you want to see whether fitting a user
interface there feels better.
