Re: How to use LaTeX code from manual to include LilyPond-generated TOC?

I've been asking myself questions about how to do this for a bit...

It seems to me most natural the TeX would be having the last word (if
you'll look after the lame pun there),
and thereby lilypond should indirect somewhat its internal sense of page
numbering, so that some negotiation
can happen wrt to where things are...

It seems to me this discussion is relevant to what I'm trying to say

I can see the posted code tries to do something like this, but it seems
there's more to it than this, per Werner's point,
with which I agree. I do wonder why it isn't lilypond to emit a more direct
piece of LaTeX directly though: I'm imagining a
file usable with \include (or so) that would contain appropriate
\includepdf command lines generated by lilypond.
I don't understand why it is we're generating them in TeX seems like an
unhelpful place to do this...

Happy to help if you think there would be use
