Thanks again, Jonathan - that seems the best
approach.  I'll replace it straight after
breakfast tomorrow, which means people can see
the Ravel headword for just one day!  Make the
most of it!

I hate to say this, but the Keyboards headword
is also by Ravel ...

The most interesting comment in this thread was
why don't we (ie the composers among us - which
definitely excludes me) write our own inspirational head-words? The features of the associated section
could be fully demonstrated and the composer would
get some publicity in the credit for his/her contribution to LilyPond. I might take this a
little further.  A composer friend of mine (who is
unfortunately wedded to Sibelius) has agreed I
could use a snippet from one of his works for the
vocal headword.  Or would you like to contribute
a few bars from your opera, Valentin?

Graham's right. Too much time on copyright. I've selected a very nice passage from Beethoven's Op. 127 and will begin setting it later today. With any luck I'll send it out by the late owl and it'll be waiting with Trevor's breakfast tomorrow ;-)

The stated goal of finding an inspiration headword for strings are
*not* being met by discussing French copyright law, so this
20+email thread is "garbage"[1].

[1] I have to admit that I found the "don't count WWII years
towards copyright for soldiers" law fascinating, and in another
context I'd be happy to continue discussing it.  Again, the
"garbage" comment was in the context of lilypond doc improvements.
