I surely agree about not mixing them in the output, but input files for
#1 could be reused for #2.

I don't think so.  The examples page looks great besides one little link
in small font size to the sources (or to a dedicated Snippets page, see
below).  My concern is about what to do of files in input/.

Agreed, but we'll have to think about the way these larger examples
(many of them are full pieces) should be compiled on LSR and in the
docs.  In particular for our docs, I'm not sure lilypond-book processing
is desirable, I'm willing to keep them compiled directly by LilyPond,
and we'd have a special page in Snippets documents, e.g. generated by an
updated avatar of (the script that generate old
Examples page).  Thoughts?

You already know I'm lazy about renaming directories (one reason is,
it's so easy to forget someting, for instance did you rename pictures/
to logo/ in GUB? ;-), and the full pieces snippets should probably in a
different directory if we don't compile them with lilypond-book.
