I haven't seen anything on this list about Scribus, a linux-based desktop publishing program. I have been playing with it and it has some interesting features. Basically, you define your page size with borders and then create text or image boxes for your input. You can import lilypond pdf images directly into your image box. You can then put transparent text boxes on top of your image allowing you to do anykind of markup anywhere. I wouldn't recommend it for a an ordinary sheet of music, but I think it adds some interesting possibilites. I am trying to learn how to use it and how to use Lilypond at the same time as I'm working on a liturgy, so it's making for some long -- but fun -- days.

I think Scribus has a python interface, so you could write a little plugin that takes .ly code, runs it through lily, and pasts back the resulting PDF files.

That would actually be pretty neat...

Sponsored feature, anyone?
