A setting in the Score \with block?

\new Score \with { output = midi } { ... }

\new Score \with { output = pdf } { ... }

It's a nice start.  How would you specify what you wanted for output (i.e.,
PDF (ps) vs. MIDI)?  It might look a little weird if you needed a Book for
MIDI output...

 All settings (including Scheme commands) are still available, just put
 in a *named place* in the input file, rather than floating freely in
 space ...

 That's a good place for Erik to lead, probably, since he has a good
