The situation is that I want to write out my statistical info collected during
the score block processing to an external CSV.
In my case students are given a lilypond file template which they need to use.
This template contains a single score block in which they need to put their
However, some students are rather creative, and spread out the same work over
multiple score blocks.
It is very unlikely that they will use book for structuring and in the rare
case that might happen I can always edit it out manually.
So, it looks like wrapping the toplevel-book-handler and adding my own stats
writing will be exactly what I need.
Thanks a lot!
