He's talking about the lilypad editor, which we distribute with
our OSX builds.  Similar to the lilypad editor (same name,
completely different code base) that we distribute with our
mingw builds.

Screenshots here:

I don't fault him for confusing lilypond/lilypad, since they're
part of our official binaries.  And the app name is even
""... it's actually extremely for newbies to figure
out that lilypad is *not* lilypond.  I think they'd have to either
read the source, or trawl through several years' worth of email
list archives.

Yes, I could fix this, but I don't consider it even a
Medium-priority issue, so I'm not likely to get around to it for a
year or so.  Patches will be thoughtfully considered.
