Hi all,

Can't you use a \bookpart block to achieve the page break at the start of a \score, too?

For a couple of years now, we've had Nicolas' cool top-level \pageBreak
commands. So I'd like to get rid of the code supporting the old
breakbefore \paper block variable.

Nitpicking: It's a \header block variable (attached to each score) - I tried it as a paper variable and was quite confused when things didn't work ;-)

Before I do, is there still a
use-case for it?

Yes, I think so. The use case I'm thinking of is works with multiple pieces: By default, pieces start in the middle of a page. But with the breakbefore header variable, one can automatically start a new page with each new movement (as opposed to manually inserting dozens of \pageBreak commands). The breakbefore is kind of a global switch, so one can easily change styles.
