Uh, Emacs has not exactly been standing still the last 7 years.  Anyway,
nobody is keeping your experts from using and documenting Eclipse or
Netbeans for creating Lilypond files.

One thing I have learnt in the past: it is mostly pointless to try
supporting a platform that is not your own choice.  If others are
passionate enough about it, they will do a better job than you can.

Lilypond is a batch processing system.  You can use whatever editor you
like with it.  If there are people who like Emacs, that does not change
Lilypond to the better or worse.
