Yes.  I should have tried ascii art instead of explaining it.  I guess
its meaning wrong though.

  Here's my main intention in asking.  It gets into musical preservation
  in general and mutopia in particular.  I'd like my transcription to be
  close to the original.  Should I update the over 150 year old
  manuscript to use modern musical conventions, or try to recreate the
  original with computer typesetting?  I feel this is a tough question
  with good arguments on both sides.

  I'm not in musical acadamia.  I can't make value judgements of this
  sort.  I simply want to make old, unadultered music available, for
  free, to the masses.  For me, this means accuratly reproducing the
  original score.  I'll let the scollars debate the details.

  Sorry for the simple question turned to streem-of-conciousness moral
  debate.  This is something I feel somewhat passionate about.  Since I
  don't feel that the addition of this bar symbol is something that's
  wanted in general, I'm not going to push it.  However, is there a way
  I can greate this new bar symbol with scheme code in my score?

  Thanks for your help,
  Tim Nowaczyk
