That is also my “beef” with the entry.

I’m happy to keep working on it, if I can ask for what will be much-needed help 
from time to time.

Me, too! I’ve decided I’ll probably “bunt” this by working up and submitting a 
patch just for the new TimeSignature #'style options (which would only work on 
currently-accepted time signatures), start another branch (or dozen?!) for the 
bigger feature, and then [having successfully submitted my first Lilypond 
patch!!] focus my primary development efforts to higher-priority things (Lyric 
work, MarkLine context, etc.).

I’m glad you did, and that you spoke up.  =)
