        Oops!  I forgot -- 1.3.141.

        Thanks, I'll customise them.  But I would suggest that the default be
set so that they don't touch, at least when there are multiple ties.

        I guess if the Big Names agree with me, I'd like a little extra
intelligence concerning either the "a8.( b16 )a4" example, or an option which
says "Slurs always have the same anchor point", by which I mean that if the
option is on, then (head . head) and (stem . stem) are allowed, but not
(stem . head), or vice versa.

        Thanks again :)
