It didn't really work out for me because MIDI was still
entirely generated, making proofhearing harder.  And setting
this property is generally more work than commenting out
some parts.  I couldn't switch it off from the very
beginning of the piece either...  But didn't even try too
hard, though commenting also has a drawback: %{ %} is not
nestable.  You just can't win all the time.  I still think
the skipTypesetting property would be useful if it could
consistently suppress typesetting of other parallel things,
too.  If I remember correctly, it fell short on lyrics.
