Hmm, I hadn't really thought about it before, but I'm sure this option
is more common than LilyPond's default double repeat sign. It's also
more pleasant to look at. :)

A bit more esoteric, I'd say, but still easily implemented.

It's actually three new styles, since ":|.|:" will require "|.|" to
prevent the colons appearing between staves in a

I've knocked up a patch which implements these styles, together with a
context property `doubleRepeatType' for setting the default style
using \repeat volta.  At a line break, both styles will revert to ":|"
(before) and "|:" (after).

If the patch gets the OK, you'll be able to use these repeat signs in
the next release.
