This is a nice idea. It is however not the job of the lilypond development team.
Lilypond dev should IMHO focus on making lilypond work well. If there is enough
need for a bundled jedit+lilypond package, then anyone could create and
maintain that package (it's all free software after all). I'm sure the lilypond
developers would be happy to link to that package from the downloads page.

You can compare this to the autopackages for linux. There is one package called
"install", containing all sorts of things, and one called "upgrade", which only
contains lilypond.

AFAIK, no java environment ships with windows, so if you want it to work
out-of-the-box, then, yes you would need to include java in the download.
