currentColor sounds like the right default. It also seems reasonable to allow the user to override that default and set it to black or another color, depending on their use case. Maybe that's already possible? Maybe it's already possible from the command line? I haven't looked closer, but empowering users through such options is one of LilyPond's strengths.

Over at the Scribus forum a small issue prevents svg output from lilypond
commandline being rendered in Scribus the desktop publishing tool. PNG
output works.

The Scribus issue refers to SVG fill attribute "currentColor" being used
instead of "black".


Here is a quote from a Scribus forum snr. member:

"the lillypond authors seem to know about the issue but (probably) wrongly
decided to do nothing...

can somebody who uses lillypond try to post a bug report for this issue with
jean's explanation from the bug tracker and telling them that this shortcut
makes hard to import the svg in scribus?
(i mean, they could keep track of the color used and always set it
explicitly, instead of relying on a default value that seems not to be 100%
