I do hope this gets fixed soon, as it can make the reading of certain chords
a bit difficult as evidenced in our good friend "Stand In The Congregation"
(attached).  On the first line there are three collisions (G/A & A7, Em/D &
D, A/D & D), three on the second line, and two on the third line.  The first
collision on the second line is pretty bad, as you have a chord that appears
to be G/BA7/C#!
