I don't think this bug has been seen before.  Could you construct a
very small example of this and send it to bug-lilypond ?

To clarify: we're proposing that we include a
ly/bagpipe.ly
similar to ly/english.ly and whatnot.  I've tested several versions of
bagpipe.ly, and it works, other than...

... this \flatten thing.  I'm not certain that removing Key_engraver and
Accidental_engraver, and having a special \flatten markup is the best
way to do things.

Other than that, I propose that we accept ly/bagpipe.ly -- particularly 
since
it doesn't change anything for non-bagpipe music.  I've already added

Re: Full bar rest representation

May I propose that "multi measure rests" is replaced by
"full bar rests" or "full measure rests" in the manual
to avoid this common misconception.

Regarding the Musica ficta accidentals

I noticed the new support for suggested accidentals and am a bit
surprised that this wasn't added as a new possible style for the
cautionary-style property instead. I seem to recall that such a
solution was discussed when the cautionary-style property was
added several years ago. This would also be more in line with
what Nancho Alvarez requested in
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/lilypond-user/2004-11/msg00292.html

This is technically impossible, since the suggested accidentals have 
different roles in the placement strategies. This implies that they have 
to be of a different Grob type.

Re: Regarding the Musica ficta accidentals

OK! However, wouldn't it still make sense to only typeset the
suggested accidentals for accidentals marked as cautionary in
the input? At least in music from early 17th century, it was
indeed common to print some but not all accidentals explicitly.
With the current implementation, you would have to repeatedly
switch suggestAccidentals between true and false. It would be
easier to just mark the ones added by the editor with a "?" in
the input. (Hmm, how to distinguish these from automatically
generated cautionaries)?

One alternative to my proposal below might be to set the
cautionary style using a context property.

That would be great! Patches appreciated.

Yes, that is probably the way to go. What is the proper of specifying 
the key signature as default in the bagpipe.ly file rather than 
entering it in the score? I see that I could do

\set Score.KeySignature = #'((1 . 1) (3 . 1)) 

somewhere in the music, but what is the syntax for doing that in a

\layout { \context { \Score ... } } setting?

Yep, I will do that.
