I prefer "muted" rather than "dead". Though, the LilyPond internals
can get kind of violent, especially with the Hara_kiri_engraver, and
ly:grob-suicide! (whose docstring simply says "Kill grob"). I would 
rule that more as a homicide. By the way, I killed a grob once, just
to watch him die.

ps. joking aside, I think "muted" is alot better.
