# goes into Scheme, and #{ goes into music mode then.  If you write #{
then # goes into Scheme and Scheme has no idea what { is supposed to be.

I've not fundamentally changed LilyPond's design.  I streamlined and
generalised a lot of stuff where things appear to make a whole lot more
sense now and have quite less of a tendency to bleed internals all over
you if you poke them wrong.  But consistent and logical is not the same
as simple even though it helps, and I've not really had much of a
wrestling match with markup and their commands yet.
