My gut feeling is that formatting a compound meter should encompass formatting 
a simple meter, and I’ve been trying to understand where to draw the line.

If both \compoundMeter #(2 3 8) and \compoundMeter 4/4 could be made to work, 
why bother keeping both \compoundMeter and \time?  Why not just let \time do 
all the work?

(I’m not proposing that I combine these commands, but that I leave the code in 
a state from which it is easier to move later.)
