Hi all,

I've started working on a package for displaying harmonic analysis
symbols. In the submodule for functional analysis I have (using the
original code of Malte Meyn) the main command \function, which gives
very obvious code like

  \function (D_3-7)=>

(for an intermediate dominant seventh with the "3" in bass position).

What do you guys here think: Could the use of "function" as a command
name lead a) to confusion by people mistaking it as a language keyword
or b) to issues down the road if at some point one might want to create
a core LilyPond procedure with that name?

I think that \function is *not* a good name.  It's too general.

An adjective added to it might resolve the problem.
