ah, I'd missed that!  I'd also forgotten about David's American

BTW, you might want to cc Jonathan Kulp directly, since he *is* a
US musicologist.  Even if his research interests aren't directly
tied to lilypond, I'd expect him to at least know others US
musicologists who would be directly interested in such a grant.

Depends on how international you want to go, how closely tied to
music it needs to be, and how academic the people need to be.
There's Peter Chubb in Australia; he worked on the robotic
clarinet player.  My supervisor in the UK had a recent phd student
who did stuff on a database for musicology, combining sensor
readings with lilypond scores.  etc.

Oh, I definitely don't think that's unreasonable to propose!
There's definitely potential; it just depends on how much real
interest there is in actually coordinating the grant application.
