I did something like this.  My motivation was that I didn't want to
maintain separate,,, ad infinitum, when they
were all practically identical, except for including different
combinations of,, etc.  And I would prefer to have one
file where I could apply \score and \paper tweaks, instead of six.

So I put special comments around each part, and "make partA" would create
the the from by eliminating all the other parts.
(I used a quick&dirty sed command to do it, by cpp would be more robust.)
I also had "make score", "make parts", and "make all".

If you really want the nitty-gritty details, check out Vivaldi's The
Seasons on Mutopia.

I was under the impression that the idea of #ifdef style conditionals had
already been rejected multiple times.  That was circa 1.6, before the \tag
command, which I confess I still haven't tried.  Is there a way to filter
tags from the lilypond command line?
