Do you have a good image?  Yesterday I've written to a TeX-Gyre
developer asking for addition of this glyph to the `Schola' font, a
(greatly advanced) successor of New Century Schoolbook.

A real-world image would help a lot.

Hmm, I'm not really convinced that this is the best shape available.
Additionally, such a glyph is dependent on the used font, isn't it?
Ideally, it should be thus part of the font used for the text, and not
part of a separate lilypond font.

I will assist you in case we decide that it really belongs to feta.
