yes, I wrote it from scratch - I only intended to get the big & boring
part, all those notes, but I did add some other things - it doesn't do
lyrics however. I'm not sure there is much point - it is just some text
that can be pasted into Denemo.

it is one click of the mouse if you open the .ly file in Frescobaldi
(Tools->Pitch->Convert Absolute to Relative).

Did you try the scripts to fix Sibelius's output? Do you need help
running them?
Did you try File->Export As->Quick LilyPond Part to get just the music
of the current part into a file?

Perhaps you are thinking you would like to do this operation repeatedly
- that is, you are thinking of entering the music using Sibelius and
then typesetting it with LilyPond? Denemo is seriously quicker and more
musical for entering music; it is just that - a music inputting program,
with everything tailored to getting music into the computer in the most
convenient and least tedious way possible.
