I won't do that – I trust that it happens automatically :-)

Mhmm, I don't like this, especially if the koron is positioned between
staff lines.  Additionally, Emmentaler doesn't use rounded corners in
the inside of glyphs in general.

However, I'm going to redesign this glyph soon to make it blend even
better with Emmentaler.
