Hi,

I concur with Juergen here.  Since the incipit is a completely
different piece of notation (eg. whose spacing and beat counting
should not influence the main music), this should be implemented
similiar to the hack with a \score inside the instrument name.

I think the best approach is to figure out what the problems with that
approach are, and try to solve those.
