Always something new.  What I like about that system is that
it's very easy to understand.

The only things you need to type those chords in is the
capitals, numbers, the sharp, the flat, parentheses, and
the slash, so it's plain typing except for \sharp and \flat.
That's the way I like it BTW.

You don't care about a generated midi part from it, do you?
Half a loaf is pretty good, IMHO.  Easier to type in what
you want.  :-)
