Hello members of LilyPond Community. As a new member, I am looking for help in some advanced matter of scoring from any mature and seasoned user or even a developer.

I prepare myself to type my old score that uses the aleatory square notation developed by Polish composers Witold Lutoslawski and Kazimierz Serocki. I need :
1) to put a certain group of notes on several staves into a square - whereas, as the documentation says, only text objects might be put into squares, circles, ovals etc.; by the way, both Finale and Sibelius have that notational option;
2) to turn into my own notehead the symbol neomensural94 - the circle with a dot within it - or make it possible to enter into my code its name built on the same principle as xcircle - maybe dotcircle or dcircle or even .circle? So far, my attempts to use the latter names were unsuccessful;
3) I see (=guess) that tweaking with numerical data of the squiggleLine (in order to enlarge it strictly proportionally when preserving its angles and/or curvatures) will create the two types of horizontal lines I need. But I also need the third line that shall look like a tight chain of repeated organ pedal symbols (the arches). So is there a way of building such a line? Maybe by building a small semicircle and then multiplying it as a variable?

Thanks in advance for any help from you.
