Well, with my 10 minutes, I’m still going to try not to leave someone "in the

I suppose I mean more like J-P asking “Why, when I try to make the EE do X, it 
does Y?”, and David K saying “Well, Lilypond sees X as Z, so you need to write 
Z->X first” or whatever.

Yes. Would love that.

Ah. It’s good to know the order of operations on that.

That’s what I was thinking.
