Hi Lukas,

I whiteout my time signatures. Where they are whiteout-ed, I want them to be 
'outline whiteout-ed. Optimally, I’d like a 2-3 point horizontal outline (so 
that there’s a clear break in slurs that hit the TS "mid-staff"), but a 0.5-1 
point vertical outline (so that slurs which *just* graze the top or bottom of 
the TS don’t get broken).

What I do now is apply the correct amount of whiteout via the edition-engraver, 
because the shape of the slur changes (with layout changes, transpositions, 
etc.) and the EE allows me to react more nimbly.

That’s just the most obvious use-case I can think of right now.
