        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
