Ah, I see. The OSX application is a very new thing; previous versions of lilypond

Well, somewhat off-topic, there is OzTeX. :-)

I still run lilypond from the
command line all the time (using vim, my favorite text editor). If you're interested
in that, take a look at the readme for configuration details.

My intent was to perhaps do that. Some other traditional UNIX installs on Mac OS X I have done, worked just fine.

The OSX editor is a fairly basic text editor; when you "compile" a score, it just saves the text file somewhere and calls lilypond on it. There's absolutely
no disadvantage to using another text editor.

Have you considered a version where one is doing all work only from XCode? This would save the work on a Mac OS X interface. (I may check that out myself later. )

In any case, this is a discussion for -user instead of bugs-.

Do suggestions belong to the help list? With Bison, it is the opposite; there they should go to the bugs list, as developers may not follow the help list so carefully.
