In the last fifteen years, I’ve learned never to bet against Lilypond…  ;)

Just in case you’re interested in my [not-just-Lilypond] workflow: I find it 
easiest, best, and superior (in terms of output) to build the front matter and 
end matter in LaTeX (with its own page numbering), and then simply insert the 
Lilypond score (with its own page numbering) as a PDF at the correct spot.

Use multiple bookpart sections?  =)
