I've already done a ton of work on keyboard tone-clusters
and percussion pictograms, but my Windows hard drive
tragically fried last week, and I won't be able to do any
LilyPond work until next Wednesday at the earliest, and
that's when my work starts up again, so I may be delayed
quite a bit. If you're willing to wait several weeks for
me to get my act together, I'm happy to help out as time
permits. This is of course in addition to all the other
stuff I was helping out with before I lost the hard drive
(code cleanup, doc fixes, GLISS stuff, parser
documentation, fixing autochange, auto clefs, smart
arpeggios), all of which will now be seriously delayed.


Well at the very least, don't waste your energy on
clusters or pictograms. Maybe I can have a proof of
concept for one or both some time before October.

And in case you're worried, I did back up most of my work,
but some of it I'll have to re-do. Oh well.

Hope everyone's well though!
