Comment #5 on issue 665 by v.villenave: Request: MusicXML backend

New comment from Ralph Little:

"I have been approached by a programmer who is interested in helping me with my
efforts to produce braille output by going the XML approach.[...]

Currently, using Erik's interface method, structure could be exported in a fairly straightforward manner, but positional information from Lilypond's layout engine would be much harder to extract. For the purposes of what we require [for braille conversion], the layout information is not really required. Therefore, we propose to just extract the structure and leave the positional information for a later time. I
think the back-end implementation would be largely the same anyway.

We propose to link to the LGPL MusicXML library if there are no objections:

This library is pretty mature and covers all the bases I think."
