I grew up with Texas programmable calculators, spent my youth with Atari, learned (and later forgot) to use vi to configure uucp, sendmail a.s.f., worked with Unix and Oracle, saw and learned to love html and xml. Today I enjoy coding to relax from my stressing consultancy job in the telecom environment.

Besides byte-shuffling I do boat building and sailing and practice music (kb, g, fl, dgo) and hand puppet theatre

I agree that for transposing instruments (esp. fretted) like g, mand, etc. the performance is maybe not so much of an issue ... still reading 6 sharps seems more difficult to me than 0 or 1

I only tend to disagree on "difference between C/G and D/A" in the case of tempered tunig as I asumed in my question; there is no difference, not even a subtile, it's a plain geometric sequence determined by the twelfth root of 2 and the relation between intervals is the same

+1 for voice range and modulation ... better to modulate from D to E than from C to C#
