The CG

    All engravers should have double-quotes around them:

        \consists "Spans_arpeggio_engraver"

    LilyPond does not strictly require this, but it is a useful
    convention to follow.

Apart from the bad engraver name here (it's Span_arpeggio_engraver),
this advice is rather old.  It would appear to stem from

    commit a545fc2d47d53b0124f796d45def240e5f3834ab

        Update policy.

which would be 2.11.43.

Definitely preceding

2.15.43.  Should that make a difference?  No idea.
