I'm not totally sure.  I play guitar a bit, and from what i know slurs
are not exactly the same as hammer-on/pull-off.  A slur means a smooth
transition between notes, and of course hammer-on/pull-of gives a
smooth transition, but i've also seen slurs in guitar music that are
impossible to achieve this way - you just have to play smoothly.
In other words, a slur says how the music should sound like, while
hammer-on/pull-off say how to play it (what technique should be used).
  Thus, i think they should be separate things.
I think i've also seen a special notation for them - iirc it was H or
P attached to the slur or something like that.

But i can remove this from the project list to reduce confusion.

I think that the main point here is that we should document how lilypond
works now.. and now if you use slurs you'll get hammer-on(s) and
pull-off(s) in TabStaff.

I know the notation using P and H, it was used some years ago and it's
very rare nowadays. I think that it's just redundant and noisy: you can
easily guess by the numbers if it's a hammer-on or a pull-off.
It was discussed in the tablature mailing list:

I see your point about the difference between slurs and
hammer-on/pull-off, but it would take a lot of space to discuss it and
it's probably off topic here.
