Well, I can't read that explecitely in the Gould extract. Also, I
found some examples for this behaviour, as already said.
Sometimes Slurs are very difficult to set, even manually.
That said, generally I'd agree.

Some concise description:
Not that helpful ...

Well, openlilylib can be run in a git-repository. It's the recommended method.
Though, you can also copy/paste the relevant code, delete certain
openlilylib-commands and can start playing ...
Again, the code in question doesn't work with 2.19.
