I don't have a problem with the default changing, as long as there's
an easy way to get back the current behavior, preferably from the
command line so that hundreds of files don't have to be edited.

But for me, the currrent behavior (for \repeat volta) is the correct
one.  If I'm typesetting music, it saves a *lot* of proofreading time if
what the MIDI plays is what's on the paper, and not what the performer
is going to play.

When I was using ABC for note entry, this is the major feature that
convinced me to do the proofreading on the lily output and not on the
abcMIDI/abctab2ps output, which does the equivalent of \repeat unfold.
