Ultimately, my goal is to be able to design stylesheets that match
certain “house styles” (e.g., Hanle, Chappell & Co., Peters). I find
that many plate-engraved scores appear to have a slightly heavier
overall look to the staff lines, so I wanted to increase them without
necessarily increasing the others proportionally.
I agree, by default the staff lines look rather light in LilyPond.
Perhaps you can make a point if you statistically show that
hand-engraved scores use to have thicker staff lines in relation to
other line thicknesses, such as to convince ‘the developers’ that we
should change the default.
In the meantime, I do think that it should be easier to override staff
line thickness in a style sheet without changing other line
thicknesses. And it really makes sense to have a context property
‘lineThickness’ as ‘master’ line thickness, instead of a grob property
StaffSymbol.thickness. I’ll submit that as an enhancement request.
