Oops. I thought 's' stood for "skip", but it stands for "spacer rest".

Chords are covered in the Learning Manual, though empty chords are not, 
yet.  Neither spacer rests nor *m/n are covered in the Learning Manual. 
That would have been reasonable evidence.  Less reasonable evidence is 
that I remember the syntax for chords, but seem to have forgotten the 
difference between spacer rests and skips.

Well, a straw man is a point that can be easily won, improperly 
substituted for the point that logically needs to be won.

The proposal was to shift from s1*0 to <> in the examples. Whether <> is 
a better example than s1*0, seems to be the relevant question, not straw.

Is there a working example with any third solution?
