I haven't had a chance to look at your code, since I don't have a login to
your server, and it wasn't attached to your email to the list.

The improved MIDI sounded good to me.  I'd like to get it into the

As a first step, it could be included in an optional add-in.  The way to
make it work is probably to first split your scheme and lilypond code.

I'd recommend that you put your scheme code in a new file that could be
placed in the scm/ directory, perhaps something
like articulation.scm.

And then you'll have your lilypond syntax stuff in file that
can be placed in the ly/ directory and included in a lilypond file.

Then, you can post your articulation.scm and files on the
lilypond-devel list, where it will be reviewed by the experts.

Sounds great.  The best way to get a review is to post code on -devel.
