Hi David and others,

I don't think so.  The problem is that repeats now support putting the
\alternative phrase inside of the construct since that is a saner way of
doing things.  But the previous way is still supported for compatibility
reasons.  Your input file could be interpreted either way, and the way
LilyPond interprets it is not the one you intended.

This is a design problem I think, and not a matter of you misreading the
documentation.  No idea what a long-term resolution would look like.

I agree that the new syntax is more sensible. Wouldn’t it be an option to deprecate the old syntax and disallow it in a future stable release? It seems to me like it would be worth it, even if convert-ly may only give a “Not smart enough, do it manually”-type warning.

Best, Simon

Simon, you moved this from bug-lilypond to lilypond-user. Was that intentional?
