Internals Reference: defines the "under the hood" lilypond stuff.

Which doesn't really make sense, since you have to look under the hood
every time you want to make a property setting.

Err, remember that the Program Reference is now the IR. The NR will describe how to construct tweaks in a compact manner, the LM will describe how to construct tweaks in a legible manner, but finding out what the Voice #'padding property does (and what the default value is!) is only done in the IR.

(in this case, #'padding is used as examples in the LM and NR, so of course people will know about it -- but the actual place to find this info is the IR)

I agree completely on what you write here!
Funny, up to version 1.6 or so, it used to be called "LilyPond Internals", then it
changed to "Program Reference". Now we are almost back again.
I'm not convinced that "Internals Reference" is the best title, but let's not spend too much effort on that discussion now and work on the contents instead.
