Eh, well, the /input/test/ just looks ugly - the dots are
aligned to the bottom of the text (instead of the top) and there is no
ending vertical line. I.e. we have


instead of

8va          :

Not before we can read the "old" central-c-position from scheme (c.f. my
previous mail). Otherwise you need different macros for each clef -
which is quite ugly.

Voltas should always be aligned. In this ex. they get different y-pos.
This should be fixed before 1.6.

  \context Voice \notes {
    \repeat volta 2 { g'1 }
    \alternative { {b'1}
                   {a'2 g'''2}
  \paper{ linewidth = -1 }
