I removed that line in the English docs since it is no longer required
here.  The _parser_ (rather than the lexer as previously) now evaluates
the stuff inside of #( ... ), meaning that it does no longer trigger
premature evaluation when asking the lexer for a lookahead token.

That's actually more a matter of "someone who understands the LilyPond
parser" rather than "someone who understands Scheme": to someone merely
understanding Scheme, the previous behavior was quite surprising.  Which
is why I changed it (sacrificing ly:export in the process).

So you can throw the line out in the German docs as well.
