The verdict's in!
So, the person who contacted us is the assistant to a big-wig in the French 
public service.  I just called her, who passed me along to him.

Basically, he has a personal project that he'd like to do through LilyPond 
involving the syrinx that he'd like to notate.  It has nothing to do with the 
Canadian government.  I told him about lilypond-user-fr, and I'll send his 
assistant the list address.

He also asked me to check & see if there are any people currently residing in 
Montreal that he could call / see for help.  I told him that we were a 
community of volunteers, but that I'd check w/ the French list to see if there 
was anybody in Montreal who'd be willing to give this guy a call and/or go see 

He seems like a very nice gentleman who knows nothing about printed music, is 
an absolute beginner but fan of music, and who is so busy that his assistant 
coordinates everything for him (his job moves him around a lot).

I want an assistant...
