Yes, but the problem is that you only find one error at a time and
for a large score, the processing time for Lilypond to find the
next bar alignment error may be very long. This gives a very time
consuming debug loop.

Would it be possible to add an option where Lilypond only typesets
music after a certain bar number? Of course, it still has to 
parse and process the full file but the processing for the initial
bars that shouldn't be printed should be possible to do very quickly.
This would be very useful when you enter large scores.
