Lyrics do complicate matters; are your scores with or without them?

Also, my figures include tweaking and some proofreading.  Proofreading
is exactly the phase where point-and-click would be useful, provided
it works well enough (I can hardly wait to get home and try it).

Same as me, then.

I use barchecks all the time, but not octave checks.  Haven't gotten
the habit, I guess.

I usually don't care about that, mostly because everyone will be using
the same score anyway; that's how choral music works, usually.

Oh, and I guess you're probably a lot more intimate with Lilypond than
I am.  ;-)
