Well, there is still the question of what 1/2/3 should _mean_.
Currently they are connected with \voiceOne, \voiceTwo,
\voiceThree... and the meaning of those is "topmost", "lowest", "below
topmost" ...

I find this both disturbing and hard to remember and so for me the
question is what the most satisfactory way to change that would be in
the long term.
