I use the current implementation as a feature; you only have to 
specify a key change once for each staff! The same holds for 
time signatures, special bar lines and all other properties on 
the Staff level.

The warning message could be clearer though:
"warning: Different key signatures in different voices, using 
the most recent change."

If we make this an official feature, we could remove the warning
