Ah, I thought there had to be a clever way around this.  I just tried it
out on a test file.  Let me make sure I've got it:

Copy (for safety) the file to be edited.

Edit and save to a new file.

diff -u old-file new-file > diffs-file

Send diffs-file

Have I got it? Should I send them to the list or just to you?  And it is
the *.itely files, correct?

I almost said "American English" as I thought I remembered seeing it
different in British publications.

Well, I grew up with it and am used to it.  German capitalizes all the
nouns which strikes *me* as odd.

As for editing, now that I've got an easier way to do it maybe I'll get
more of it done.  I'm glad to finally contribute something to LilyPond.
