This is close to what I do, and I have to regularly transpose parts
between Bb-treble and concert-bass.

Bear in mind that lily does not assume western tonal music, so when you
say "transpose" it doesn't take scales into account - it just shifts
everything by that interval.

If you need to print stuff out in multiple pitches (like I do with my Bb
and concert parts), it's easy to put the notes in a variable wrapped in
a transpose, and then print it out wrapping the variable in a different
transpose. Just have some scheme for a consistent "scale" in your
variable - I make sure all my variables are internally in concert pitch.
