Curtis, Asmus Freytag and I have taken an interest in symbols such as you
list and are collecting a bucket of them to be proposed. We'd need the
usual proofs of existence and so on; on my web site as you know there are
lots of samples of what's needed. You might want to liaise with Asmus and
me to further these symbols.
