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:
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!

Thanks Colin.  Indeed it is recorded in issue 99, with
wording from Graham pretty much the same as mine:

"I don't mind if this remains a request for the next
five years, but it's good to have it "on the books"."
The five years is up next October!

I still think it is more serious than an enhancement
request to a warning at low priority.  It is effectively
making bar checks in lyrics useless, as rests in melodies
for lyrics are very common.  But I recognise changing
its status will likely be nugatory.
