Re: Accidentals

Am I sure it's good practice? No. I know I've seen it before -- a quick
glance at some of the music in my room confirms it -- but most of my
music is computer-engraved.  At least, I'm not prepared to vouch
for the quality of their typesetting.  :)

However, I'm pretty certain that I haven't seen 7 accidentals printed
when the music changes from E major to A major.

I can't recall that I have ever seen this convention in printed music.
Are you sure that this is good typesetting practice?

Here's the problem:

Neither of those key changes look good to me.  Is there some way
to get a key change (from E to A) that only prints a D-natural?
say, something like
\set Staff.printOnlyNeededNaturals = ##t

I vote for that. Or that might suggest that printKeyCancellation might need to be more than a boolean and have values for as many styles as seem appropriate.
