What about the following:

  (1) The last call to makelsr produced commit 12345678, say.

  (2) The next time makelsr gets called, start with the status at
      commit 12345678 as a base, *not* with HEAD.  Doing so, later
      fixes to the snippets within lilypond's git repository are

I see two possobilities for (2): Either do a temporary branch at
12345678, apply makelsr, then try to merge, or create a diff for the
snippets between 12345678 and HEAD, call makelsr on HEAD, then reapply
the diffs.
