My mistake, sorry.  Sometimes I have different feelings how things

Good idea!  Another wish is to have the possibility to select a double
wavy line instead of the equals sign, indicating an approximative
tempo value.  I suggest to add a third, optional parameter which gives
a textual representation (or whatever syntax is easy to parse).

  \tempo 2 = 92 "Andante \quarter \approx 92"

  \tempo 2 = 92 "Andante (\quarter = ca. 92)"
