Might I suggest that, since there is genuine variability in what
people name it, that you make this a configuration option, with
a sensible default (e.g., A4)? This will fend off complaints from
future users who want it to be 'A3' or 'A5', although those
who call it 'Monty the Middle Note' might have to lump it.
