I managed to find out that the comment was added by Han-Wen
in the patch;a=commitdiff;h=b1b62afbf96285ebd4d4406e21dee15f43366bad
I don't really understand the comment, since the revision indeed added the use
of \chords.

\chords {...} is just a shorthand for \new ChordNames \chordmode {...}
just as \figures{...} is a shorthand for \new FiguredBass \figuremode and
similarly for \drums and \lyrics. See also

Without really knowing much about chords, it seems to me that the
current text is relevant.

The whole section 2.4.2 is the only one I didn't change. At the top of the source for this section, I saw this:

@c TODO: revise this, \chords { } is shorter and more intuitive.

but I'm not certain what it means. (I know even less about chords than I do about vocal music!)

Does anybody want to rewrite 2.4.2 (or simply vouch for the current correctness) ? AFAIK, the current 2.4.2 was written back in the 1.2 or 1.4 days. Now, this info presented might still be correct, or it may be out of date and confusing. I just need somebody who uses chords who can look at this section and let me know.
