I have just completed my first score with LilyPond and I am *very* impressed and pleased with the quality and the flexibility I have.  One of the main things I'm using it for is to rescore pieces to landscape and condensing out whitespace.  Because of my vision (I have special glasses), and the angle a clarinet requires, wider and shorter is better.  So far, it is working out beautifully.

I do have two questions.  I was able to reproduce my source score perfectly (with a couple of tweaks for the way I prefer) except for two things.

I like to have every measure numbered under the staff (easy enough) except that I can't find a way to have the first measure labeled with a '1' (I have a pick-up (partial) measure so was hoping to be able to do this).  When I don't have a pick-up measure, I don't care as much, but it would be nice to do this when I do have one.  I haven't tried this, but would it work to put the \override's for the Score.BarNumber after the first note?

Second, there are a pair of marks that I cannot find anywhere in the documentation.  I've always heard them called "intro marks" though there may be a more "official" name; the first is the top and left lines of a square and the second is the top and right of a square.  You see this a lot in hymns and are used to mark a phrase (such as part of the chorus) as what to play as an intro for the song.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!  Especially for all the great work!
