When arranging music I prefer to work with a full score. Once

which input the music definition file by name (so I can't just reuse them -
they have to be edited each time anew) and contain a score block
to construct the desired midi part files. Finally I have to run lilypond on
each of these separately ( a slow repetitive and boring process).

You can do everything in one run, but then you'll have file-1.midi, file-2.midi etc. I suggest you write a wrapper script to invoke lilypond and rename these appropriately.

A better solution is scheduled for lily 2.9/3.0
