I'm not certain if this has come up before, but you can see a different
kind of caesura in input/test/divisiones.ly
The kind of caesura that Daniel and I are more familiar with is a bigger
version of that symbol, and doubled (two slashes). Maybe some people
started putting two of them together in order to make it easier to see
the difference between a virgula and a caesura? There's probably some
interesting history in the evolution of that mark. :)
