I don't think the NR should link to the LM; at least, not for
short things like this.  The current @warninig{} in NR 1.2.5 is

I think we should just add a discussion about common errors in LM
5.2 (also, make sure you include the highly cryptic error message
when you forget a }  ).

Well, Mats was talking about more issues than just confusing error
messages (... actually, the *real* way to solve the } error
message would be to add a canary to some init file, such that when
the processing hits the canary, lilypond outputs "meow... yum!" as
a warning message).
