I forward it to bug-lilypond as it at least is an incompatibility
with earlier versions.

One way to get midi files with different names is to include each \score
in a separate \book{...}. However, then you will also get a separate
.pdf file for each score, which maybe is not what you want.

Consider the following file `test.ly':

\book {
    \score {
    \relative c' { c4 d e f g1 }
    \midi {}

    \score {
    \relative g' { g4 f e d c1 }
    \midi {}

The output of Lilypond is the following:

$ lilypond --no-layout test.ly
GNU LilyPond 2.4.2
Processing `test.ly'
Interpreting music...
MIDI output to `test.midi'...
Interpreting music...
MIDI output to `test.midi'...

The resulting `test.midi' file contains only the second score: to me this seems a bug.

I remember that older Lilypond versions created test.midi, test-1.midi and so on. How can I force such a behaviour with \book?
