I am not sure whether I understand your comment correctly.
What should I change to make the patch more "friendly"?

I think that Joe means go ahead and break old scores --
Carl, thanks for clarification - I misunderstood Joe's message totally,
as I can see now.
do the best thing
for going forward, so make TabNumbersOnly the default behavior (like you wanted to), and have TabFullNotation be the override. That is, ignore my
initial suggestion to keep TabFullNotation as the default behavior.

Ok. How should I put these things together?

As far as I can see, I should

1) put all the functions in a file scm/tablature.scm
   (I have to add this file in ly/, right?)

Yes, put the functions in scm/tablature.scm. But the file should be added
in scm/lily.scm, not ly/  We load scm files from
scm/lily.scm, and .ly (soon to be .ily, I think) files fom

2) modify ly/ so that tablature without stems and stuff
will be
   the default situation (where do I put the \TabFullNotation command?
   Is scm/tablature.scm the right place?)
\TabFullNotation (which I think should be renamed \tabFullNotation, to be
consistent with LilyPond command names) should be defined in
ly/, I think.

Some proplems arise here due to the order in which the files are
read. I put the \overrides in ly\, but all the
callbacks declared in scm/tablature.scm don't seem to be known
at this stage, so I got myriads of error messages.

Is scm/lily.scm read before ly/
Arrg! Please ignore this message - I forgot to define some
callbacks as public.

Sorry for the noise.
