Well, Lily does sometimes reject explicit breaks, for example when they
are placed in the middle of an incomplete bar:

  { a4 a8 a4 a \break a a a a a8 \break a4 a a a }

but the following commands do not override this behaviour.  So in this
respect the two statements are misleading.  But are there other circumstances 
where both sentences as written are correct?  I can't think of any.

Indeed.  I think we need a tracker to record this discussion and the
eventual conclusion.  Bug Squad: could you please set one up?
