Hi Pierre,

please find two comments inline:

Perhaps, I am misunderstanding what you are doing. But wouldn’t it be
better to use convert-ly here for upgrading from version 2.14.2 (or what
ever the file is) to 2.18.0?
That way you would automatically update the syntax, the snippets will be
more future-proof and you have less trouble with syntax changes. In
short: isn’t that what convert-ly is made for?

Why? Wouldn’t it be good to know that for the future?
