So here is Version 2

I fixed a few issues with version 1, added a command line option
--bigpdf / -b, and documented that option in the german and english
versions of usage.pdf .

The patch is based on the current git master of lilypond now.


This is now being handled in Tracker issue
I think the easiest way to test the code thoroughly is to apply the patch,
do a full build, and then  change

       "bool bigpdfs = false"

in global-vars.cc to "bool bigpdfs = true" and do a full build again.

Postprocess the doc pdfs according to

         gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -o outgs.pdf  notation.pdf
         pdfsizeopt --use-multivalent=no outgs.pdf outfinal.pdf

and verify that everything went ok.

It is expected that the english notation.pdf processed this way should
contain 72 fonts (instead of the 3548 of an original notation.pdf).


It would be nice if someone could add translations for other languages
than german.
