Cool!  I applied it, and made some changes, see;a=commitdiff;h=b2d91785b770533fd27763c5b773855f6723fd98#patch3
BTW I don't know what "#CCF" was supposed to mean as a color.

I second this.

I find it a good idea, even if we might decide to change this image:
it's a small heavily compressed JPEG image, this is not appealing
enough, LilyPond deserves better graphics on its start page.  Feel free
to propose a replacement for it, e.g. a graphical mixture of Monet
Waterlilies and some LilyPond output...

Done in Git.  BTW I made apply this style sheet
to toplevel pages too: the documentation index, the examples page,
translation status pages and developers page.

Andrew, feel free to suggest a new color for the footer :-)
