I don't understand the need of a preprocessor wrt managing large
LilyPond projects. May you elaborate on your needs, maybe there are some
solutions that you have not thought about and that would be better
adapted. Working on large LilyPond projects myself for some years, I
gradually got rid off other programs or scripts. LilyPond itself, a
LilyPond-aware text editor and a version control system are enough.

Also, why using c4 instead of c'? You will be the only person which can
read your code. If you find annoying to type c''', use an editor with
quick note insertion mode and audio feedback. Then typing the notes
won't be a problem anymore.
