  Another idea of this could be wether or not to use this on dynamics; right 
now if a \< is attached to the first note, and you wanted it to end at the 
end of measure 2, the only way I am aware of to do that is to attach the end 
to 's' notes in the second measure. As such, I usually attach the end to the 
note in the next measure, since that is where I intend for the cresc to end, 
but I don't know if that is the preferred way or not. It leads to hairpins 
being broken over barlines becoming more likely. I only recall seeing this in 
use from horrible layouts I did in finale, but I'm sure that some are 
probably in publications too.
