Umm... yeah.  The fact that he thinks this answers the question
gives me *less* confidence that he knows what he's talking about.
If he wanted it a perfect fourth lower, then \transpose does the
job.  And normally when somebody says "a fourth lower", they mean
a perfect interval.  If he wants it a variable fourth lower, then
it's not doable without scheme.
