But as we've mentioned before, one could take that two-measure excerpt and
change the pitches and perhaps the durations, but still keep the
contemporary notation elements.  This would not be a violation of copyright
law anywhere that I know of.

Also, as you plan sections, remember that anything using \set or \override
belongs in a snippet, not in the main text body.  In order to have a
meaningful manual, this may require the addition of some new LilyPond
commands, which is *not* a problem.
