I suppose this thread brings up the issue of styles: since the mentioned
clef is not really a new SIGN just a different GLYPH, are there other such
signs that we want? What about the "Fake book" style (a more
hand-written'ish style)? Or, perhaps more pertinent, since it's already
half there: a complete set of glyphs for the ancient styles? I could also
imagine(/desire) a set of manuscript-like glyphs for mensural music, and
perhaps an even more 16th/17th century alternative to petrucci.

Im not saying either that this should all be made, or that if one addition
is kept out so should all others -- rather, I'm asking if there are more
glyphs that should be considered, and (following up on my previous post)
what are the requirements and how does one make them.
