 Hi Torston,
Yes that's what I meant by it's working great, a little too great :)

Now with you amazing "Torston's mod" set to on, for example Huzzam makam's
bfc (b1k flat) is getting nuked from the key sig:

HUZZAMmusic = \makamKey \relative c' {
  \key bfc \huzzam bfc' c d efb fb g a bfc

I imagine any makam that "ends on a microtone" will suffer the same, ie,
evic, evcara, segah, etc just to name a few.
