The thing the LilyPond installer does allows the program to be
independent of the installed versions of gtk and anything else - and can
be installed by a user as opposed to requiring root permission (and
indeed this in turn would avoid the remote possibility of someone
creating a malicious LilyPond source that would use the scheme
interpreter...). If Ubuntu is picking up new releases reasonably quickly
then perhaps we needn't worry, though why I can't see 0.7.7 on the
Debian site I don't know - I didn't think the Ubuntu crowd did much of
that sort of work(?) 
All a bit out of my comfort zone though, this stuff.
