In the last fifteen years, I’ve learned never to bet against
Lilypond…  ;)

Just in case you’re interested in my [not-just-Lilypond] workflow: I
find it easiest, best, and superior (in terms of output) to build the
front matter and end matter in LaTeX (with its own page numbering), and
then simply insert the Lilypond score (with its own page numbering) as
a PDF at the correct spot.

Use multiple bookpart sections?  =)


Well, I tried that, but adding
  \paper { first-page-number = #1 }
inside or just before a \bookpart doesn't work.
