I think he means that you have lilypond source in a .ly file, but in
the .lytex file you can specify that this particular printing should
use this clef.  In other words, I'd be able to print the same lilypond
file in treble clef for a singer and in "G_8" clef for a recorder
player,   and in tenor clef for a cello player.

That's easy if you write the actual music in a separate .ly file
and only specify the \score in your LaTeX file. Something like,

\begin{lilypond}
\include{mypiece.ly}
\score{
\new Staff{\clef bass \mypiece}
}
\end{lilypond}

The main disadvantage is that lilypond-book will not realize that it has
to rerun lilypond if you make a change in the included .ly file, so you
might have to remove the generated lily-*.ly files to make sure that
everything is updated.
