Incorrect example in documentation

Hi there,

Thank you for all your work on LilyPond!

The syntax for \revert-ing certain properties appears to have changed after 
LilyPond 2.18, which makes the “Altering the length of beamed stems” example in 
the documentation slightly incorrect. At


note that the last six notes have default length. At


the stems of the last six notes are still 8.5 staff spaces long. This can be 
fixed by changing the third-to-last line of the example code to

\revert Stem.details.beamed-lengths

For the sake of completeness, here’s an example that illustrates the issue:

\version "2.22.0"
  \override Stem.details.beamed-lengths = #'(10)
  c'8 8 8 8
  \revert Stem.details
  8 8 8 8 % These stems are still too long.
  \revert Stem.details.beamed-lengths
  8 8 8 8

All the best,
