Change the pseudo-comment prefix(es).

By default, pseudo-comments are lines starting with two percent signs (%%).
This command redefines a list of possible second characters of these commands (up to 3 different characters).
This permits to avoid conflicts with pseudo-comments of other programs and also to have a simple conditional generation.

Note: this parameter cannot be set in a format file.

Example 1:
%abc-2.1 %%singleline 1 %%abcm2ps T %Tvoice Mib % voices with name containing "Mib" %Ttranspose -3 % are transposed a minor third lower %Tvoice end %Tabcm2ps % % restore standard pseudo-comments
X:1 M:C L:1/4 K:Eb V:1 nm="Sax en Ut" EFGA | Bcde | V:2 nm="Sax en Mib" EFGA | Bcde |

Example 2:

   - tune.abc:
        X:1
        ...
        K:C
        %                        % default 4 staves
        %Fstaves [(S A) (T B)]   % 2 staves
        %Sstaves S               % Soprano only
