“The Pope is not an absolute monarch whose thoughts and desires are law. On the contrary: the Pope’s ministry is a guarantee of obedience to Christ and to his Word. He must not proclaim his own ideas, but rather constantly bind himself and the Church to obedience to God’s Word, in the face of every attempt to adapt it or water it down, and every form of opportunism.”
— His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI (11 May 2005)

The letter names stay in the same place regardless of which clef is used – it does work out simpler that way.

Someone quipped that even though it was easy to use with a baby, what about all those without? Here is video evidence that it can be done.

For more details there is the Gregorio home page and the new gregowiki. The latter does not have a security certificate so may bring up a warning, but this is a known issue and should be safe to ignore.
