I suppose that is partly my fault.  In the discussion with pitches rests
in irregularly lined staves, Pál went out of his way to snap to the next
line, and I voted for just taking the user at his word.  In the context
of transpositions by an even-called interval in a regular staff, well...

So we probably need some minimal snapping after all.  Or the snapping is
triggered by the transposition, but I don't think that would be a good
idea since transpose can work even inside of chords and overrides don't
belong there.  Or we need at least one manually settable property that
will cause snapping.
