As machines get more powerful it becomes imaginable to spawn off a
program that takes the selection runs LilyPond to typeset it displays
the pdf lets you draw your desired shape and puts the \shape command on
the clipboard for pasting into your text. Denemo has a colossal overhead
for this, but it could be trimmed down for the purpose. Then, indeed a
program like Frescobaldi could call it up.

Nice - I will need to mimic the LilyPond curve drawing quite exactly,
hopefully by lifting the code.
