I was surprised the first 5', and I then got used to it, and in practice, it makes more sense than it seems at first sight. For instance, it allows me to not change the key in the middle of a piece if for a few bars only, and change my mind later, if the few bars expand into much more, without having to
check the pitches.

I got used to this up to a point where Finale - which reacts more or less the way you would like Lilypond to - gives me headache, and my Finale scores are crippled with typos :-(

I have downloaded your latest version of Lilypond, and began working with.
