I wonder if it's correct to have this option in "Advanced command line
options for LilyPond".
it rather seems an alternative to /lilypond [option]… file…/! 

if it's kept under advanced options, after

"read-file-list #f [file]       Specify name of a file which contains a list of
input files to be processed."

(new)  "in contrast to other advanced options you must /not/ use an equal
sign here! also, this file should have Linux line endings (i.e. LF instead
of CRLF)."

could be inserted.
