Lilypond is truly amazing

Hello all (and especially active developers, current and past):

I want to say again how amazing I think Lilypond is, and pass on yet another 
heartfelt thanks for all your hard work.

Today, it was something seemingly trivial: I found that slurs were passing too 
close to noteheads. In a pinch, I usually just apply a tweak using the 
edition-engraver on a slur-by-slur basis. This time, I wanted to see if there 
was some global parameter I could tweak. Sure enough, I found — a single line of code later, all my slurs 
have a comfortable (for me) distance from their contained notes. The fact that 
this parameter exists is just another example of how fine-grained the 
customization is, and how well thought out Lilypond is in general.

Keep up the good work — those of us "on the front line" truly appreciate it.
