I don't understand your point.  [...]

It's a matter of style, not a matter of grammar correctness.

I've never understood the point of two spaces after a full point
- and and yes, I've read all the (unconvincing) arguments for it.

Again, it's a matter of style, and maybe for the benefit of editors (at
least Emacs).

Yet at the same time, I see the amount of hand wringing and
discussion on these lists about all the various spacing
preferences (slurs-vs-ties differences or the size of a ball
on the end of a clef) as well as all the other musical
notation minutiae that is so important to us, which is why I
find this discussion rather disappointing.

Well, whatever we are going to use it should be *consistent*.  This has
very high priority to me.  I hope you can understand this, and I also
hope that you second it.

Bugger to the Chicago Manual of (so called) Style!

I don't mind if we follow a different style.  What would you recommend?
