Looks like very interesting. It's quite a bit of time I think web-based
editors are the (only) future, but it seems that still in 2009 not many
people catched this. The greatest problem with web word processors is not
the features (these can be implemented easily), is the feedback delay on
many web operations. For a Lilypond user, this problem may not be
annoying... so it seems to me a good idea.
But I'm philosophying. Can you keep us updated please?
