I don't have a scanner, sorry.  For crowded piano music with all bells
and whistles have a look into Beethoven's late piano sonatas, for
example op. 106, op. 111, etc.

Will try to do that.

Hmm, most of the time I'm working offline.  It is a lot of work to do
that, and I'm not sure whether I have enough time to do that.  What I
will try is to upload .ly and .pdf files to a certain directory which
you could monitor.

OK.  For reference, here my list of severe bugs, reported in the last
few days:

. Harmonic note headers are too small.  In the current CVS, the shape
  is OK.

. Ledger lines are not symmetric if accidentals are present.
  [Additionally, the positioning of accidentals is bad, but this is a
  minor issue currently.  I'll file a bug report later.]

. Ottava bassa octavation lines are missing vertical padding to note
  heads.  Since dynamic marks have the same problem recently if they
  are located below a staff I believe that you've introduced a bug in
  the last few days.

. Rehearsal marks in the first bar of a staff must be positioned right
  to the clef, not at the beginning of the line.

. Ties don't get enough horizontal space in tight lines.

. Ties in chords which contain seconds have incorrect horizontal start
  and end points.
