This works though technically it is a cheat. If, for whatever reason one
wanted to transpose the tonic of bestenigar from fb to c, the key signature
will print c4k flat which is of course inaccurate. Why anyone would want to
lock an important microtonal pitch like IRAK to C, I don't know other than
to say you can. What do you think? Considering it's only happening for two
makams I'd be willing to let it slide.

Still I wonder and as a self admitting (and envious) non coder, wouldn't it
be possible to do add a conditional statement in the makam file:

if the makam is either besteniger or revnaknuma
then do TorstonsMod
else just be normal

Again, anything like that or even being able to understand Torston's code
is beyond my skills. I wish! Just a musician.

with full on respect,
