I'm currently in an email exchange with Graham Breed about some of this and
he also suggested including along with though also said the

"Ideally, it would be a function added to the Scheme API so you don't even
need an include file."

Is this doable? We would still need to set our temperament but before I get
too far ahead of myself, could that be:

tuning = #53
%\include ""

\eqtemptuning \53

(something like that)

Regarding the differences in our key signatures, right I hadn't thought of
that! I'll go ahead and change all 0/53 to simply 0. As David Kastrup it
doesn't make a difference to Scheme. Figuring out all of those key
signatures was a mind bender for me.

Could you please show a pdf of your Cemil Bey Hicazkar Pesrev using HE
arrowed accidentals? And how to make that an option?
