Add bpm metronome indicator to sheet music export

Hi, your lead sheet export feature is great, thanks.

But could you add a “metronome mark” like so:

http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.18/Documentation/notation/displaying-rhythms#metronome-marks

I know I could add it myself by editing the exported Lilypond source file, etc etc, but since you already know the tempo of every Hookpad project, could you please add it in?

With that simple addition I could send a Hookpad-generated lead sheet of one of my songs to another musician and they won’t need to ask me what the tempo is. It’d be ready to rock.

Thanks for a great songwriting tool.

@MattoR

Thanks for the suggestion, should be easy enough!

Actually we really should be putting tempo indicators anytime the tempo changes…

EDIT: Ok, we implemented it, will be incorporated in the next minor release, 2.12.3

I see you’ve implemented this already, thank you.
