Well, sorry for that.

Understood. Right now I don't have a good idea for the naming, though.
At least one which would be short enough.

bar-line::calc-blot would likely already fit the bill.

something else?

Ok, the message _is_ awful.
I wanted to express:
If a user copies p.e. `make-simple-bar-line' in order to do some minor
modifications to fit his personal needs, he will not also need to c/p
`calc-blot`, although it is used to determine the blot which is
consumed by the
there used ly:round-filled-box-procedure.

Is it used only there?  Should its define just be moved inside of the
function?  Then you formally would not "also need to c/p calc-blot"
because it would already be copied from inside.

I'll set it to need-work on the tracker for now, so that James doesn't
need to

At any rate: are the arguments for calc-blot such that it's only
conceivably useful inside of bar-lines?  If not, a better name would be
desirable.  If so, try fudging "bar-line" into its name.
