That's not the problem.  The problem is that you feel that
lilypond developers are your personal slaves.

LilyPond is open source.  That means that you can see the workings
of the software.  LilyPond is Free software.  That means that you
can legally improve and distribute the software.  Neither of those
means that people who have improved LilyPond in the past are under
ANY kind of obligation to you.

You're blaming lilypond developer for not doing a job that *you*
are not willing to do.  That's not on.

If you want something done, then start working on it.  Since
you're (apparently) not willing to work on this, you can hardly
blame us for having the same opinion on the matter.
