Yes, although that could be worked around.  For example, the
server could generate the comparisons, then make them available on
the web.  When somebody (ideally a bug squad member in this
scenario) wants to check patches, they go that url, check the
images, then click "yes, no changes".  Emails with those urls
would be sent to the lilypond-auto mailing list so that anybody
could deal with them.

I was actually thinking about such a system when I first set up
Patchy, with particular reference to me going on vacation with
only a netbook (or tablet) but leaving my desktop computer to do
all that heavy lifting.

That's an option.

That's yet another egg in the James-basket.  :(

That would be great.

I also seriously wish that you'd take on an assistant -- either
for doc editor or general admin.  We need to get more people
involved in keeping the project running, to spread the load so
nobody gets overwhelmed.
