  lilypond -p 0 my_file.ly    % for quick work

I think most of these will go unused, as very few people will know how
and when to tune them.  Having configurable settings is neat, but it's
far more important to do the right thing by default in 95% of the
That's actually precisely why I'm suggesting a
  -p X
option.  People (generally) aren't going to look into the depths
that's even worse, because people that will want to use this option
won't even understand what it does.  It's the same time of idiocy of
Windows' and IE settings: do you want low, medium or high for hardware
acceleration, internet privacy.
If this is done similar to LaTeX packages where you can enable the option "draft"
to speed up compiling, and if everything looks ok, you remove the draft and
that's it, then this would be not too confusing for users.
What about something like
\draftModeOn / \draftModeOff ?
