New issue 737 by v.villenave: Enhancement: support for footnotes and/or endnotes.

Several uses have made this request, but given our current spacing system
it might be a bit tricky to implement.

Quoting Jiri Zurek (who's also offering a bounty, which I am personally
willing to double):

"A given sign would be printed as a markup at some place (a number, for
example) and at the bottom of the page (alternatively in the margin)
would be printed the corresponding footnote text (possibly even a small
paragraph). The numbers/symbols to use should be customizable to certain
extent - for example numbering each page separately, or numbering each
piece separately, or numbering whole book in a series.

Lilypond should automatically keep the footnotes on the correct page, and
automatically find how much vertical space is needed in the footer by the
footnote text.

For musicologists, musicians, composers, this is a critical requirement."

Dana Emery noted:
"Endnotes would be easier to implement, and some publishers prefer
endnotes, but we ideally should do both."
