lilypond-book filename fragment option

Subject: lilypond-book filename fragment option

lilypond-book version 2.0 had a fragment option called filename="xyzzy".

Unfortunately, all this option did was to rename the lily-*.ly file to
xyzzy.ly, while the .png, etc files (which I would consider the important
ones, since they are the final results) are still referred to with random

I was able to fix this in lilypond-book-2.0.1 with the patch below.  It
then used "xyzzy" as the basename for the whole process (.ly .tex .dvi
.eps .png etc).  This patch saved my project, since python was choking on
the size of my source file.  I had to break it into smaller pieces for
lilypond-book to generate the .png's from, and I was able to keep <img>
references to predictable filenames in the original source file.

I've downloaded lilypond version 2.3 now, and noticed that lilypond-book
has been extensively redesigned.  It now tells me this:

   lilypond-book: warning: ignoring unknown ly option: filename="baron1"

However the documentation still has "filename" listed as an option:

   This names the file for the |printfilename| option. The argument
   should be unquoted.

There doesn't appear to be any other references to the "printfilename"

Is there any possibility of getting a filename option which uses the
given filename for the whole process, instead of just leaving a copy
of the .ly file with that name?
