Sorry to bug you again, Valentin.  :-)

I'm starting to dislike this idea after all... At least for now.

SVG is a vector graphics format, so there should only be *one* page of
output per file.  If we want to provide an option to generate only one
SVG file, this option should apply to the PS, EPS, and PNG output as
well.  So this would be a different feature request, IMO.

For example, if you have a multiple-page score, and use the PS backend
to generate PNG output, you would get the following output if the file
is named `':


Does anyone else have any thoughts about this, or the patch itself?
