SMuFL request: Hairpins with flared ends


I’m not sure this is the right place for requesting this, but here we go anyway:

I recently wanted to explain the meaning of crescendo hairpins with flared ends in the preface of a score by including a graphical representation of it in the text. Since there is no such symbol in the SMuFL specification, I ended up Frankensteining one by putting together a hairpin with brass technique symbols for lift and fall. Since I suspect that other composers might want to do the same thing, I think it would come in handy having such a pre made symbol ready to use.

All the best!

If you want to request something for SMuFL, please make your request by creating an issue on the GitHub project.

Alright, thanks for the directions!
