LilyPond web service

Hi everybody,

I wrote a Google Wave Robot for LilyPond integration called LilyPondy which renders LilyPond code snippets in waves with the help of a web service. I think Google Wave and this robot could help spreading LilyPond very effectively. However, for it to work, of course, a web service is needed which takes LilyPond code as its GET argument, renders it with LilyPond (safe or jail mode of course), and returns the result as cropped PNG image. (Multiple servers can be configured for load distribution.) Is there an official LilyPond web service somewhere online like this (similar to for Guido)? If not, I strongly propose setting up a server for this purpose. I already implemented this HTTP service. It needs only PHP, LilyPond and ImageMagick installed. Could you host this service? Until Google Wave gets more widespread adoptance, users could benefit from it already with just a minimalistic form-based web interface.

Thanks in advance,
