Hi David,

You’re not extrapolating the concept, as I have been asking people to, so I’ll 
once again make it more explicit for you:

I want the user to be able to say

    \tweak style #'note-denom \time 3/4.
    \tweak style #'note-denom \time #'(3 . "4.")
    \tweak style #'note-denom \time #'(3 . {4.})

or basically any other intuitive input that would allow a dotted duration for 
the denominator, which would pass through the parser to the TimeSignature 
formatting function(s) without “loss” (as per Aaron described it).

Unless I’ve totally misunderstood this thread, none of the three inputs typed 
above will work without parser changes, possible backwards compatibility 
problems, etc. But I’m happy for you to tell me that I’m wrong, and that one of 
them can work with minimal developmental effort.
