The main problem is that the esthetical impression of the shape notes is 
extreamely poor.
I.e. triangular noteheads with horisontal bottom look extreamely stupid when 
attached to a stem (therefore I slanted the triangular noteheads a bit. They 
are still not perfect, but they are imho much nicer than before).

The main goal of LilyPond is to achieve musical output of high visual quality, 
and I find this very hard to accomplish with note-heads shaped after this
