Good point. To narrow down the number of suggestions, I just took the
extreme cases. If we go for natural width flats, the overlap can be

Yes, these big proof versions may be fine, but in the end, they'll have to
be reviewed in realistic sizes (and, by the way, in all Emmentaler sizes
from 11 to 26.

My personal "ideal" double-flat overlap would be so that the upper arches
(thinking the stems away) form nice and harmonic arcades like they do in the
Antiqua letter m, if you know what I mean...
