I just found a problem with an old doc-commit of mine
(0a8cfef, from May 7 2010).  I implicitly endorsed using
barchecks in the lyrics input (see LM 2.3.1 "Setting simple
songs").  Unfortunately, when the measure following a
barcheck starts with a rest, a "barcheck failed" warning
results, which is unsatisfactory:

I suppose the options are:

1) remove the lyrics-barchecks from the docs, and mention
  (somewhere) that barchecks do not work in lyrics input.
2) make barchecks work in lyrics mode (i.e. with rests).

I prefer #2 -- I think it's a valuable feature to have.  But
as I've implied recently, I'm too busy at the moment to be
getting my hands dirty with LilyPond patches, though I do
have enough time to start discussions.  Should I file an
"Enhancement" issue on the tracker?

I'd like to see an issue covering this.  Even if a fix
is a long time coming it is best to have the issue recorded.
I think I'd call this a defect rather than an enhancement,


This would seem to be issue #99, Trevor, and given it was reported in 2006, I suspect a fix will, indeed, be a long time coming!


The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance
of those who have much, it is whether we provide enough for those who
have too little.
