Using Lily 2.1.17 on MacOSX.

I have eight viola duets, written in seperate score files.  Each one has
its own \header{} section, and produces nice music on its own.

I'd like to put them all together in one lilypond-book, but I don't want
to define all the headers in LaTeX.  In older versions of LilyPond, I'd
need to do so, but I noticed that you can set up the lilypond-book to
use the Lilypond \header{} stuff (with the following two commands):

\input titledefs.tex
\def\preLilyPondExample{\def\mustmakelilypondtitle{}}

These "imported" headers look great for the most part, but if the
a warning.  (lilypond-book doesn't give any warnings, but when I run latex
on the resulting file, it gives the warning)  Running lilypond-book and latex
on the example files should demonstrate this.

Other \header{} stuff (such as title, composer, etc) doesn't produce a
warning.  I'm not certain how serious this warning is -- I'm having
difficulty compiling my collection of eight duets, but that might be
caused by something else -- but it's wierd that \header{meter="foo"}
produces a warning when \header{title="foo"} doesn't.

Cheers,
