Comment #1 on issue 2542 by address@hidden: Support for pdf layers

Maybe it would be useful to start with a basic support for outputting to pdf layers without bothering with all the complex layout considerations.

The support for a layer that is as independent as a default layer in a layout program can be of immediate use.
To name just two potential uses that I can directly see:
- if the output of annotate-spacing were written on a separate layer, the end user could simply switch the display of it on and off without recompiling the score, making it easier to compare. - the same would be useful for things like the visualization of bezier control-points that was realized in this thread:

Maybe one could implement a basic (but clean) support for this and could only later develop the more complex implications (like output that implies collision handling in other layers)?
