What we would need is a payed full-time developer.  However, this is
expensive.  Assuming that the programmer has a family with children,
an appartment, etc., and to provide a reasonably good living for him
or her, this would be about 3000 Euros a month here in Austria or
Germany (one third of the amount would immediately vanish as taxes and
social security payments).

But maybe there is a group of LilyPond philanthropists who can afford
this and are willing to do so...
