It would be nice to have some central place that explains some
"internals" concepts. Here are examples of things that a new developer might have to ask about, or perhaps spend a long time disentangling:


It would be nice to have a LilyPond-specific glossary, that users could also use. For example, a user might get "glyph" and "stencil" confused. I still get "command" "keyword" "identifier" and "variable" confused. I still don't know the difference between "parser" and "lexer". You get
the idea.

Any thoughts?

It would be a helpful addition.  The best place would
be another appendix to the NR.  The only alternative
would be the CG, but this would not be helpful to users.
As it's a glossary, including terms which users don't
ever need would not a problem, I think.  (The LM is too
simplistic for this, the MG is for musical terms and the
AU is not appropriate.)

Maybe Technical glossary would be a better term?

But we need to wait for more comments before taking any
