 { \key d \major \transpose d' { .. MUSIC HERE .. } }

In cases like this I usually do

\score {
  \notes \transpose cis' {
    \key c \major
    { c d e f g a b c }

(take a look at input/mutopia/R.Schumann/ )

I don't think that there is much point in continuing this discussion. -
Actually implementing some keysig-relative input should be quite easy -
but I feel very sure that the result would be loads of newbie mails
about transposing commands that behaved differently from expected.

Personally I would also feel annoyed about the key signature being
attached to the music (so that I could not typeset an already entered
