The name is OK -- there is no better name.  Other info files like that
for dvips have the same problem.  I suggest to add a new command to
texinfo which maps certain command line arguments to certain nodes,

  @commandlineargtonode lilypond,top


  @commandlineargtonode dvips,top

An alternative is to say `info -f lilypond', but this is non-intuitive
