So, do I need to do a different headword, or can this small excerpt be considered "fair use"? (Or does the concept of fair use apply in French copyright law?)

It's true that in most of the European countries (and many other countries around the world) Ravel's works become public domain on January 1, 2008. However, as far as I know (but then, IANAL) France is a little exception in that it does NOT count the years of the 2nd World War towards these 70 years for authors, who served in the war, so Ravel is apparently still protected in France (see also the English Wikipedia article, but not in hardly any other country. However, we want to distribute lilypond also in France, so we have to abide by their copyright laws, too.
