I’m interested in looking through your example.

You may know this already, but… For the last few years, I've been building a
complete LilySchenker framework which does a lot of this stuff
programmatically. Perhaps we should coordinate our efforts, so that neither of
us reinvents wheels?

I believe you can, with very few exceptions, re-define any function / macro /
shortcut to be anything you want.

That seems unlikely. But having loaded a framework that re-defines those same
commands should be no problem.

Best,
Kieren.
