Yeah, the 5th gets post-fixed. Sorry, I did not think of that.

Let me look into the code... put it in the exception list:

Go to line 643 of chord-name.scm (within the set! chord::names-alist-jazz 
block), which should read:

         (((0 . 0) (2 . -1) (4 . -1) (6 . -2)) . ("" (super "o")))

and add after this, on a new line:

        (((0 . 0) (2 . 0) (4 . 1)) . ("+"))

That should do the trick. I believe ;-) However, I can imagine a pitfall: that 
your 7th chord comes out as C+7, then. Also not desirable.

If that doesn't do it, I have to say you're on your own. I tried to use a 
pretty systematic naming scheme, with as few exceptions as possible. That's 
why the augmented 5 always gets post-fixed. But anyone with a knowledge of 
Scheme can create their own naming system.

It's not that hard, maybe you give it a go and post it here?

All the best,
