What was the reason for releasing Lilypond under the GPL rather than the LGPL?
In keeping with Lilypond's philosopy of providing beautiful sheet music
to everyone, I would believe that the LGPL would have been a better choice.

But I'm not here to argue my point; it would be me against the community
and would not be a very pleasant debate. Rather, I have a little problem.

I'm trying to build what will really be the first true sheet music app
for the iPad.

There's already at least one sheet music app for the ipad: No idea what it's like.

FWIW, I think the ipad screen is too small, too low resolution, and too reflective for the purpose. It's only a 220mm (diagonal) display at 132 ppi. There is also no foot pedal support on the ipad for managing page turns. For an ordinary PC/notebook you can get dictaphone software foot pedals or even just put a mouse on the floor and press the buttons with your foot.
