If unmatched parentheses appear in titles, composers, etc. on the leadsheet, they will lead to false reading when the leadsheet is parsed using the S-expression tokenizer, and garbage could result. To resolve this, the titles and so forth need to convert paren characters into escaped versions thereof, and the escapes have to be inserted when the leadsheet is saved. The same thing could happen with style names, etc.
