This plugin removes Special Barlines whose type is "Normal". These barlines are often created to replace other special barlines, such as double barlines, but have the undesirable side effect of splitting multirests.

Deleting these barlines will, in almost all cases, cause no visual change (except in multirests), as the default barline, which is almost always a single barline, will now be visible.
