I realise it's only been a week since this was last discussed, but:
a) no one who can say whether or not this can be implemented has responded (ever) b) it's an open issue since apparently October. I just added it as a user feature request. c) Can we just make the change so that more people aren't confused by the issue. (I've answered another question related to this in the last week)

While we're on the subject, can I put in my two cents that voices don't just up and die when they don't have anything to do? Having to keep voices alive is sometimes annoying.

We discussed this last October, and I agreed to make the change in 2.13, but then the suggestion was made (by Mats):

Better yet, why can't the shorthand automatically "do the right thing"? i.e.,

    << {} \\ {} >>

should be translated automagically into

  << {} \new Voice {} >>

I'd rather not waste time changing the documentation now if this code change is likely to be implemented. So, what's the chance this change will be made? I've no idea whether it is easy or difficult.

Since I haven't heard any feedback, I thought I would post to the - devel list as well. Incidentally, I've answered questions directly related to this twice in the last week or so.

Since the NR has the wonderful introduction to single-staff polyphony, can this be simply inserted into the LM at the appropriate point. I'm sure new users will have a much easier time of engraving their music, and many problems can be avoided later if this topic is presented in the LM the same way it's presented in the NR. Unless, of course, there's a fundamental reason not to. In which case, okay.
