more on chord names

In the docs chord names seem to be somewhat connected with the notes in the music. I don't want to have any automagic connection between the music and the chord symbols. Maybe I still don't understand how to generate some of the chord names. In particular I need to generate a minor chord with a suspended 4th and can't find a way to build that. I guess that is not the same as 'a min /d' which I think specifies that the 4th is in the bass?

I tried some of the markup exceptions and couldn't get what I tried to work.

Attached is where I am at the moment. It also shows an interesting feature (bug?) where specifying 3- gives a seemingly redundant m super (flat 3).

Thanks for any help,

Paul Scott
