fantastic!

lilypondfile[noquote]{xxx.ly}

did the trick and I can get indention if I want.  In this particular
project, I want a bit.

Why not do away with quote/noquote altogether and just indent the first
line or the lines after according to whether or not \property
Staff.instrument and Staff.instr are set?  If they are set = "" , then
there would be whitespace for anyone who wanted it.  If they are not
set at all then no shortening except the first line indention, and if
indent is set to zero then none of that either. That way there doesn't
need to be any worrying about what the default should be, and dummies
like me don't have to try to understand what this has to do with
quoting anything.  :-)

BTW is Staff.instrument going to be Staff.Instrument?
