(Also in response to Carl)
In Italy, we call this approach "fare la morale".
C's answer made P's words look like:

"Hey, please develop this for me." And the answer was, more or less (--->
do the moral):
"If you want it to develop, collect the money."

This is absolutely the opposite of my intentions.
Instead, I pointed out that the lack of a cautionary pedal is not simply
something that can be improved. And I have no problem using ugly workaround
to solve it (I'm in control of my code).
Instead, it is a general problem that makes the pedal ** unusable *** in
any professional score.
And it's not a problem for me, but it's a problem especially for novice

In any case, I reported the problem to the developers. Just as I reported
to Harm that there is an error on the snippet's Midi.
They will decide what to do, according to the time they can or want to
dedicate to the thing.
