```
Maybe I'm naïve, but shouldn't q be processed much earlier? What we really want IMHO is a shorthand at the input level to spare a lot of typing; thus
```
<a c e'> q

should be equal to typing

<a c e'> <a c e'>    ,

```
and as soon as a new <...> is seen, this new chord used as the subsitution for q.
```
```
Consequently I wonder whether handling of q can't be done by the lexer (or parser? I always mix this up :-). Maybe such an implementation would be really dumb, but I think that too much cleverness with \relative causes more headaches than necessary...
