Correcting some typos in the usage manual, I just read in the
section about musicxml2ly:

"@item -l, --language=LANG
use a different language file 'LANG.ly' and corresponding pitch names,
e.g. 'deutsch' for deutsch.ly and German note names."

I wonder if this assertion is still valid or will ever be deprecated.

It's easy to test if it is currently valid.  It's impossible to
say if it will ever be deprecated.

I suggest you find a musicxml file and try converting it to
lilypond a few times, giving different -l values.  If you do not
see the expected "language", then file a bug report.

It works with every language (tested with 01a-Pitches-Pitches.xml and 01d-Pitches-Microtones.xml from the regtests).

The only thing that might be "disturbing" is the presence in the resulting file of the line

\include "lingua.ly"

instead of the newly formulation

\language "lingua"

unless there were some Arabic or makam  music.xml file around...

Sorry if this is too much noise.
