Thank you for the moral support, Simon!

My "client", as you so kindly call her, is a bit headstrong, and I'll leave it at that.

Thanks again!

The answer is very simple: Don’t do it. Tell your client it’s wrong

Exception: your client is very well aware of the rules, but she wants to
change them deliberately.

This is one of the cases where if LilyPond can’t do it (within
reasonable effort) it’s a bad thing to do.

Best, Simon
