Yes, the distinction will be made in the Manuals page instead of the
directory structure, which is both better for users and not more
complicated for developers and contributors.

I'd like to move

- input/lsr to Documentation/snippets (so that this directory actually
contains some real material)
- input/new to Documentation/snippets/new
- input/texidocs to Documentation/snippets/texidocs

That's noted.

I don't think it would be so easier. It's so much work to switch to
another build system for LilyPond and I already have other
time-consuming hobbies, e.g. making our Python scripts that manipulate
Texinfo more reliable by using a Texinfo parser.

I meant LM NR and AU. As there might be some places to decide for
snippets, I'm starting right now with three main manuals and the CG,
including splitting out the essay.
