    28x { d a b fs | g d g a }

Looking at the code, I'm not sure about the implications, and I haven't built 
it to test.

    28 x { d a b fs | g d g a }    

Work with the current MR?  I would much prefer if we could allow white space 
between the repeat count and the x, because white space is very seldom crucial 
in lilypond syntax.
