Please bear with my shallow knowledge of Lilypond.  I’m not sure what action 
you suggest.

Maybe because the comment is so old, there is a looser interpretation that is 
still a good idea, like “this should be done in Scheme."

For example, I see that in define-grobs.scm, BarLine’s stencil property is 
defaulted to ly:bar-line::print, which is defined in bar-line.scm.  On the 
other hand, ly:time-signature::print is defined in C++.  Would I go wrong 
trying to following BarLine?
