* There should be regression tests.

OK. (but only *if* the patch should  be accepted ...)

* Why not use tags?  (Example below.)

Because that requires the command definition to be done locally or in a library.
The point of the patch is not to make original breaks *possible* but to make
them *available*.

* Does this implementation make it possible to set the option from the
lilypond command line?

Yes, but not as a "command line option" but using the -e option defining the configuration variable

* When using original breaks, wouldn't one also want original page size,
staff size, etc.?
* What about hundreds of other features of the original edition?

IMO these are different things.
The detailed aspects of an original edition are a matter of a style sheet - if you want to mimick them. What I am talking about is a tool to improve the user experience for music entry or proof-reading. It is extremely practical to have identical breaks when you have to match the original manuscript and the compiled LilyPond output in a score of 100+ pages. But of course you don't want to hardcode these breaks and prevent LilyPond from doing its own breaking. So what I want is a way to be able to enter the original manuscript's breaks in the input file and switch them on and off.

And I would really love to see that being part of LilyPond itself and not only possible to implement in a library. Firstly because I would like *all* LilyPond users to have that available and secondly because I would like to add this as a Layout Control Option to Frescobaldi.
