I am trying to transcribe a piano composition from the late 19th
century, staying as faithful to the original score as possible. At two
points in this score, the right hand is set in bass clef for two bars,
and one of those sections is across a line break, similar to this tiny

\version "2.18.2"
  c'1 |
  \cueClef "bass" f | \break
  g \cueClefUnset |
  c' |

However, Lilypond begins the second line with a regular-size treble clef
and a smaller cue bass clef after it, whereas the original score has the
line beginning with a full bass clef, as if a permanent clef change had
occured (even though the next bar changes into treble clef again).
Though this might be stylistically questionable – is it possible to
reproduce this effect in Lilypond? I found [1] in the snippet
repository, which appears to achieve a similar effect in the third
figure (left hand, with reversed roles for the clefs), but I’m afraid
the source code of that example is quite beyond me, and my attempts to
extract the relevant (to me) parts of it have failed.

Best regards,
Lucas Werkmeister
