This is one of the strenghts of free software. Another is that over time it 
becomes tayored to actual users and actual potential users as opposed to those 
in some salesman's head. If lily had been a commercial product it might well 
have died years ago. It would be nice to have commercial backing but wheter or 
not this happens my guess is that lily will become the defacto standard for 
computer typesetting of music over the next 10 years or so.
