Here's the problem:

  \key e \major
  \key a \major
\set Staff.printKeyCancellation = ##f
  \key e \major
  \key a \major

Neither of those key changes look good to me.  Is there some way
to get a key change (from E to A) that only prints a D-natural?
say, something like
\set Staff.printOnlyNeededNaturals = ##t

A similar thing happened with a key signature change.
i.e. G major to A major resulted in F-natural + F-sharp & C-sharp & G-sharp

It would be good if there was a way to prohibit this.

\set Staff.printKeyCancellation = ##f

does that.

Maybe I didn't give a good example. By setting key cancellation to none, ALL key cancellations are not printed. A major to E major in LilyPond would normally be F-natural + C-natural + G-natural + F-sharp + C-sharp + G-sharp + D-sharp. While normally, only F-sharp + C-sharp + G-sharp + D-sharp would be printed.
what about the other way around
E major to A major in LilyPond would normally be F-natural + C-natural + G-natural + D-natural + F-sharp + C-sharp + G-sharp. Normally, just F-sharp + C-sharp + G-sharp + D-natural would be printed.
Any ideas anyone?
