One wrinkle is that compiling and testing things with "make doc"
is (at the moment) out of the question on the computer that I
currently have access to. Which means that I can't definitively
prove that my patches don't break anything, even though in some
cases (like fixing typos) there shouldn't be a problem.

It is possible to check the syntax of the
texinfo docs under Windows by running the
file through lilypond-book and texi2html, but
this doesn't help with doc string edits.

Let me know if you guys would rather have me skip the proofreading
step for trivial patches, but until I hear otherwise, I'll
continue to run them through -devel.

Go ahead and push trivial changes to doc strings
and the docs themselves.  Code changes are
a different matter and must be reviewed first.

If a commit causes a problem the next person to
build LP will either fix it if it is easily
fixed or simply revert your change, so as
long as the change is trivial no real harm is
