nice solution so far - but still some open points!

trying to take advantage of your mood i'll ask the following questions:

- it might be simpler to use skips (s) in the contextSpan voice

kieren was probably copy-pasting and saving time. if you're doing this for real, you'll probably have this in a spare variable using space notes anyway.

- how would you make more TextSpanners later on (the Text_spanner_engraver
has been removed from the voice)?

if i understand frédéric correctly, this is only required for the full (conductor's) score.

- how do you find out which contexts and engravers are involved?

over my head.

- if you have 15 instruments (staffs) you need to add 15 "stringendo"s - is
that correct?

you probably already have the 15 stringendo's in the instrument definitions anyway -- frédéric's question was about getting rid of all 15 of these definitions in the conductor's score.

Since I'm currently teaching (a week-long FileMaker Pro course), I must be in good instructor mode... ;-)

instructor mode is good... but why FileMaker for heaven's sake? ;)

All that being said, I'd still like to know why StaffGroup doesn't "Do The Right Thing", [i.e., why this behavior shouldn't be considered a bug].

i've become VERY wary of calling anything a bug in lilypond. however, this exact case seems to be a perfect qualifier for a bug. i'm wondering why it didn't work as well though... but there may be something totally and horrendously fundamental that we're missing in this case and is so simple that the only ppl likely to know the answer will be mats, han-wen or graham. :) [not necessarily in that order ;)]
