You're right.  Ok, go ahead and ask Sebastiano if he would be
interested in adding multi-language support to LSR, where the
alternate languages would be output in texidoc strings inside the
.ly file.

For bonus points, ask him in Italian.  :)

Python, make, maybe texinfo, maybe stepmake, etc.  Depends on
exactly what you're trying to do.

Actually, I've got a good suggestion on how you could get started
with python and all this stuff.

Currently, adds different amounts of blank lines to
some .ly files depending on whether you run it as a full import
vs. when you run it locally.  It would be nice if that didn't
happen.  i.e. if you ran lsr-downloaded-today-date/
once, then did: lsr-downloaded-today-date/
... etc...
it shouldn't change between after each

As far as this type of build system stuff goes, this is a pretty
easy task.  But if you're beginning python now, I'd expect it to
take 5-10 hours for you to fix.  On the plus side, once you've
done this you'll understand the current system much better.
