Ugh.  Did not remember that.

Anyway, here is how I would do this: Chords are much more common than
tremolos, so changing notation for the latter seems like the better
choice.  There is already verbose syntax using \tremolo that can also be
used.

If a shorthand needs to be available, c4/8 might work for it.  I think
(don't quote me on this) that slashes have meaning right now just after
chords in : notation.
