This function should be good at least as far back as v2.10.
The *2 doubles the duration of the breve, to make a double-breve (so if you just want double sidebars on a single breve, leave off the *2).


Hi all,
isnt't this double-breve the same thing as a longa? At least concerning the
duration (as long as 4 whole notes).

I think I've seen music where the breve (2 whole notes) was printed with
two bars on each side.

What?! I can haz breve with duble side-barz neouw? Veeeery nice :-) I
asked about this a longish time ago, but it wasn't possible then.

...and Ari Torhamo probably was looking for this kind of breve instead
of a longa.

IMHO it is too difficult to distinguish a longa with two side-bars from
a breve (with one side-bar).

By the way: I prefer the baroque note head style.
