Erm, that's exactly opposite.

- the NR tries to avoid overrides as much as possible to make
  convert-ly more likely to work.
- therefore, running convert-ly on the docs should fix everything.
- automagic updating For Teh Win (tm).

- the snippets may use overrides and whatnot.
- these will hopefully still work in convert-ly, but might not.
- therefore, they are much more likely to require manual attention.
- still, each snippet is small and well-contained, so it should be
  easy for any moderately skilled lilypond user to update
  them (i.e. they don't need to know git, texinfo, etc)
