    I continue my lonely crusade against the hash-tick-combinations that I 
    found so daunting when I learned LilyPond and which are needed much less 
    often today:
    
    \relative {
       \alterBroken padding #'(1 7) Staff.OttavaBracket
       \ottava 1 c''''1 \break
       c2 2
    }
    
I love the idea that we can eliminate the hash-tick for padding.

I don't think we should eliminate the hash-tick for the values.  The 
documentation for \alterBroken says that values is a list (and that means a 
Guile list).  #'(1 7) is a Guile list.  1,7 is not (although the parser turns 
it into one).  It is straightforward to learn that #'(1 7)  is a Guile list; 
it's not nearly so straightforward to understand all of the parsing magic that 
happens.

If at any point in an input file, 1,7 will be interpreted as a list #'(1 7), 
and 1.5,10.3 will always be interpreted as #'(1.5 10.3), and 1, 7 will be 
interpreted the same as 1,7  I will withdraw my objection to this usage in 
documentation.

Thanks,

Carl
