I already coded the second part (i.e. add tags based on directories and
write lys in input/lsr with no subdirs) of this idea in, the
first part could help cleaning up input/new.

You aren't :-)

Of course, it would be saner to have all snippets in one directory;  but
one of my previous thoughts was also to get rid of directories, and put
the tags info directly in lilypond files, in a form like

\header {
  texidoc = "foo"
  doctitle = "Snippet title"
  lsrtags = "docs,pitches"
{ ly code }

(I've sent Sebastiano a patch for "doctitle".)

However, the current LSR output in is
fully usable, so getting rid of directories in LSR output is only
cleaner, it's useless and require coding work from Sebastiano and me, so
forget about it.  There are more important issues, like LSR i18n.

This might require extra Apache setup on, and only webmasters (i.e. Han-Wen and Jan) can do that; I doubt
they'd like to spend time for this.  Maybe we should forget about it and
think about less involved solutions that will also work offline; anyway
I think the current snippets-> linking Texinfo macros are enough for our
