MuseScore 2.0.1

Right now, we have style settings to control default sizes of many aspects of notation - thickness or staff lines, stems, ledger lines; relative size of augmentation dots, etc. It would be good to have a default notehead size setting as well. Myabe this isn't specifically needed for MSN support, but it seems not a bad idea, and a musicologist friend just asked me because he just prefers smaller noteheads, so I'm passing it along.

I should mention here I made some initial attempts at implementing this but was stymied a bit by the fact we use the quarter note width as a unit of measure here and there in the layout code and updating all of these places to use the proper version of this - some might need the scaled, some the un-scaled - looked daunting. It's doable no doubt, but until all the details are worked out, there would doubtless be a bunch of layout glitches.
