As far as I can see there is no strict need, fot it to be zero, so if
you have a sensible patch to change it, go ahead and post it.

BTW I know that you have an interesting patch for Lily to make line
configurations more flexible. I'll try to review it this week.

In LilyPond, using line-positions, the center is required to be at 0,
otherwise there are problems with the created score.  There are a
couple of possibilities.

One is to make the documentations more clear that staffs must be
centered at 0.

The other possibility is to modify LilyPond to take staffs which are
not centered at 0.

I notice 2 areas which need to be modified.  I have a small patch for, which otherwise draws the bar line of the correct size,
but centered around 0 rather than centered around the real center.

Ledger lines need some work as well, though there are problems even if
the staff is centered, particularly if the top and bottom lines are on
even positions.

Should I post my patch for bar lines for staffs which are not centered
at 0?
