I'm not a musician and I'm a young lilypond user. So I don't like come here
and say that this part of the documentation is not clear even if I would
specify that it is not clear *to me*. Report this type of things is
difficult without hurt the persons that write the documentation work. And
of course, I appreciate who made the effort to write it.

Regarding the example in the documentation: here it is.

test = { \tag #'here { \tag #'here <<c''>> } }
  \pushToTag #'here c'
  \pushToTag #'here e'
  \pushToTag #'here g' \test
  \appendToTag #'here c'
  \appendToTag #'here e'
  \appendToTag #'here g' \test

I simply don't understand it. I don't understand it because: it is too
long, there are too many things, I don't understand the example goal, and I
don't understand the explication following the code. But I'm sure, this is
very probably my specific problem. Of course, I could spend some hours on
it and discover how \pushToTag works, but, well, you can't do this for any
things like this to discover that you don't need this commands :)

So this is why I avoided to complain about the documentation.

P.S. Be patient with my english, I hope what I have written was clear.
