Gould writes that "[a] thin double barline ... marks the written end of the

The statement is in the context of repeated sections: D.S. al Fine, etc.

I'm pretty sure that this is easy to implement.  Is there any reason not to
make this a default?

II do not want it to be a default.  I want to have control of the bar lines.

Ossia staffs do not have thin double bars, as far as I can see.

The end of music does not have thin double bar lines.

As I'm working my way through entering  piece a few bars at a time, I don't
want a thin double bar at the end of the current engraving.  I want each
measure to look just as it will when typeset the next measure.

The only time I would want to have a thin double bar be generated would be if
I had something in my code to indicate that this is the end of the music.  And
the easiest thing to indicate the end of the music is \bar "|." Or \bar "||".

Thanks,
