OK.  Maybe the documentation can be improved...

It's *very* useful to have `global' values and `local' ones which
override within a block.  What about using \paper both globally and
locally, similar to TeX?

  \paper {
    <global values>

  \score {
    \paper {
      <local values for current \score>

Then \layout could be reserved to context handling, again both on the
global and local level.
