doc-addition for -o / --output

happenstance or intention?

if you specify a folder name as output option the output will be directed to
that folder and the name of the file is preserved

so i suggest the following change/addition  - or similar - in the
application usage manual:

1.2 Command-line usage
Command line options for lilypond

-o,--output=FILE or FOLDER

Set the default output file to FILE. The appropriate suffix will be added
(e.g. .pdf for pdf)
if a folder of that name exists, output will be directed to FOLDER (keeping
the file name)
