Indeed it came from the manual for 1.8  Maybe there should be a warning that
such things have changed?  I found it by googling with
" polyphony".

The reason why I tried this, is that I want three voices on one staff for
guitar music, and combining them with
<< \melody
gives error messages which say something like "are you sure you don't want
polyphonic notation", so I started searching...
(Here \melody is a melody which is mostly above the staff, \accompany is a
series of double notes, which are each input like <<as c>> <<as c>>, and
\bass is mostly below the staff, so that it really should be possible to put
this on one staff (it has to, I'm typesetting a written piece)).

Well ok, I'll keep meddling and see what comes out...

Cheers, H.
