I have discussed it with Manual Op de Coul, and he think it is a good idea, but the problem is finding someone that can do the hook within LilyPond.

The format is here
One problem in LilyPond is that the part of the code currently handling the MIDI output, is much less flexible than the code handling ordinary printed output. On the other hand, this code is in general much less involved than the code for the printed output, so in the end it's perhaps not more difficult of time-consuming than to add another output format for the printed output, at least if you don't have the ambition to add the same flexibility for the sound output backend as for the printed output backend.

The idea is to make an interface so that those interested in programming the printing program need not engage with those interested in generating sound output programs, and vice versa. There are also programs like
one might use for generating sound output.

So the format might be more general than Scala seq files. A user might want to add interpretations directly into the score or tweak the sequence file that LilyPond writes.
