Here's the first 2 bars of the Bone Alphabet using the abc 2.0 constructs and nested tuplets. I used default voice overlay for the 2 voices. abcm2ps (5.9.5) processes this fine. (I didn't bother to find out what the notes are on this staff, so I set it arbitrarily). It's not as elegant as the original, but it has all the information. (Again, I wouldn't choose to do this with abc, but it is possible. For one thing the actual abc looks inelegant; this is not easily human readable!).
