PS if you want a hint, one of those discussions was in 2007.

Graham, Thanks for the pointer..had a chuckle with the continued discussion 2 years later. Pity the solution was never accepted/implemented, probably not a very important issue then, but I believe it will be in a few years to come if we still want 'beautiful' output.

In fact, Lilypond's output doesn't have a resolution. It is vector
graphics. The music symbols you are seeing are drawn using Bezier
curves and lines.

A line must have a starting point, an ending point or length, and a thickness at least. Whether those attributes are expressed in pixels, inches, mm or whatnots - they are still a form of resolution.

If I want a horizontal line 10 inches long and 1/100th inch thick, I'm going to have problems displaying it on 96dpi screen if I want those dimensions respected. It's a problem of resolution.
