Nice catch!

Documentation/notation/rhythms.itely:1554: multiplied by 2/3 -- as 2/3 *
9/8 = 3/4 -- and in the third staff, the
either -- as ... -- or (as ...) is fine imo.

each number in the @code{#'@var{(list)}}
After some consideration i think that we should abandon explaining the
fact that \compoundMeter #'(2 2 2 8) == \compoundMeter #'((2 2 2 8)).
Typing two braces more won't hurt anyone, while explaining how it works
seems to be either confusing ("was it a list of numbers or a list of
lists?") or too long.
Documentation/notation/rhythms.itely:1644: listed is the
I find it a bit confusing: is each number a numerator or not?
I'd write it like that: the last number in the list is the denominator,
remaining numbers are written in numerator.
I find the description used in the regtest
( the
most clear and precise, but it uses mathematical terminology (fraction,
summand) which will probably cause problems for some users :(

constructed using a @q{list of lists}.
I'd write "more lists as arguments" instead of "a @q{list of lists}"
