Have a look at

I don't know what these are.  Show me the closed source equivalent of
LilyPond :-)

Ah.  What direction is that?

I would want you to know about it, as it seems a quite similar
project.  It would not hurt to cooperate, if possible.

There may be stronger reasons against starting something new.

If they have what you're looking for.  One big archive may be better

MusicXML has come up before, you can search the archives.  We do not

lilypond from and to musicxml is a very small one compared to getting
a decent printing of the music.
