Thanks for replying, Andrew. I'll take a little more time later to go
on all the subjects you bring about, however wanted to reply back on
one of the points you raise:

I don't intend to diff PDFs. But if I go into the lilypond source, I'm
able to see the differences between one edition an the other. Take
this as a simple example:

08:21 $ git diff master..BWV1030-JCAltnikol . | head -n 20
diff --git a/BWV 1030 Flute Sonata B minor/1-andante-flute.ly b/BWV

So.... on the flute part for the andante, bar 11 has an articulation
on Bach's manuscript that that is missing from Altnikol's manuscript.
Ok, ok.... that's a very easy example, but other more complex stuff
will also show up on the diffs.

BR!
