I've looked at midi2ly and it uses explicit instantiation of voices,
is what we normally advise.  My understanding is that there are only 4
explicit voices - voiceFive does not exist, AFAIK.  The warning message
comes from midi2ly stating that it has no more explicit voice names left,
and therefore layout is likely to be poor.  We don't need to see this
make doc.

If I read the snippet correctly (Additional voices to avoid collisions, in
NR 1.5.2), there is no limit to the number of voices in LilyPond.  But
only four voices are defined.

In the snippet, voiceFive is defined, before it is used.

So it would be nice to have a feature added to midi2ly that would
automatically create voiceFive, voiceSix, etc. if needed.

Exactly!  Having discovered the problem, the correct procedure
is to raise an issue for it, not try to hide it.  It would be easy to
add a couple of extra voices to ly/, if that would
make it easier to fix midi2ly.
