The templates in the Learning Manual should be
as simple as possible, so I agree multiple files
should be eliminated.

By the same token, I don't think we need real
music here - the temptation would be to over-
complicate the template.

Graham (et al.):

The template for the string quartet with parts (A.3.2) unnecessarily
deals with multiple files — everything the template is supposed to
accomplish can be done "more simply" in a single file, either using
\pageBreak between \score blocks (for single-PDF output), or by
wrapping each score in a \book (for multiple-PDF output).

Any objections to me making this a one-file template?
I'm considering including both examples (single-PDF and multiple-PDF
output), so that users can choose.


p.s. In the spirit of the "Inspirational Headwords", does anyone else
think that these templates should be "real music"?  =)
