I can understand that you think it is exorbitant, but you maybe you
can take a look from my perspective. I'd really want Lilypond to be
the standard for music notation, and over the past 8 years I've but
more or less 4 full-time unpaid man-years into this project to make it
so. It's been tremendous fun, but since I started a real job, I ceased
to have a social life.  For that reason, I've just quit that job,
hoping to make a (small) living off LilyPond.

BTW, if anyone wants to pool together money for a feature, I'd
consider not shuffling around the money on paypal, since every time
that happens, Paypal takes out another cut.
