Another thing that frequenty confuse new users is the \score-statement
and the fact that the braces following it do not indicate sequential
music, so that you need to nested pairs of curly braces to include a
sequentil piece of music in a score block.
It also confuses me, btw.
I know that the \score-statement is a syntactical construct, but I think
it would be nice to hide this fact from the users.
I think we could make the use of score-block much more intuitive if
changing the syntax to \new \Score and adding an implicit
sequential-statement to the score.
Perhaps we could even expand the idea of having different contexts using
different default parsing modes. Having the body of \new ChordNames
automatically being parsed in chords-mode would be quite nice, imo.
This is probably a quite major change, though. But what do you think?
