How is it not documented?

If I navigate to TieColumn,

there's a list of interfaces at the bottom, one of which is
tie-column-interface.  If I follow this link, there's a description of


Right. So why do I need to care about TieColumn? Why not just get straight to

Well, we usually talk about properties belonging to a grob, so for
consistency, it would be preferable to keep the original (particularly
as the snippet in the LSR also has the same documentation).


Well I'm not sure we are that consistent. Also TieColumn is second in line (to 
the engraver) of the whole chain of internals and the interface is third. So I 
don't see the logic of linking to the Grob if the property you need to change 
belongs to one, of often (too) many interfaces below it.
