The problem with 'hacks' and 'test' and 'regression test' is that the
regular user will associate these things as something for the developers,
not something for the ordinary user; and even if you are courageous
enough, what guarantee do you have that a 'hack' will also work in
versions of Lilypond other than yours (or the hacker's)?

Including the snippets in a 'Tips & Tricks' section would make an enormous
psychological difference, I think, provided they are well-tested (and if
there is any lilyversion issue, give the validity range, etc.);
experimental hacks should go somewhere else.
