I'm trying to write a function to make easier for me to change
arrow
directions in arpeggios.

I would prefer an event function with a tweak:

\version "2.19.36"

arpeggioUp = \tweak arpeggio-direction #UP \arpeggio

\relative c' { <c c' e>\arpeggioUp }

```
I like this a lot and I feel like I've seen this exact discussion before, but it didn't result in any core changes.

Dev Team,

```
Any reason \arpeggioArrowUp and \arpeggioArrowDown can't be defined this way from the beginning? Is there a use-case where the "\arpeggioArrowUp <c c' e> \arpeggio" way is necessary?
```

Surely it is a question of priorities. Do such alternating patterns occur more often than situations with arpeggio direction changing once in a while, but each change holds for several subsequent chords? That’s the question. (I cannot answer.)

Best, Simon
