I really am very ignorant about all this (you can blame that on the
proprietary software I use). I did manage to install Lilypond correctly this
time, but the type1 folder is full of PFA files. How do I use these? Can
they be converted to TTF?

Unfortunately, I have yet to find an open source version of Flash MX 2004 or
Sibelius. ;-) "Ah, yes," I hear you say, "only ignorant folks would use
Sibelius." But show me the open source equivalent of Scorch.

This project is going in a different direction, so it's not quite comparable
to those, as far as I know.

Pardon my ignorance.

Yes, I found that site when doing research for my project. Are you
suggesting I should contribute towards that, rather than PG? Mutopia does
seem to be a well-designed archive, but I have two reasons against
contributing. 1) I like the idea of having a one-stop archive. 2) Mutopia
doesn't provide MusicXML files.
