I should not have touched the dynamic/static issue -- never have understood it  
(i.e. the difference between dynamic/static C-libraries in linux) in depth.  
Being said dynamically, I should have said 'when typing a .ly file'. But your  
correction (Thanks!) made my point, 'to be able to change the grammary (i.e. 
lexical rules) on-the-fly', clearer:
