Thanks David. This is exactly what I was looking for. It will be trivial
to wrap this into a nice set-up where you can simply pass a list of
measures (per part or combined staff) that are not to be combined. This
works independently from manual or automatic breaking, and it is
possible to change one's mind about the decisions without having to
modify the content files!
