I've modified the author status in my repository.

My unit-tests don't currently require the Lilypond to be initialised "as a babel
language" nor a Lilypond executable AFAICT, so currently they possibly don't
need to be run "independently". I'll investigate this further.

One distinction that has occurred to me (especially following comments on 
the mailing list) is that of "babel language" and "babel language work-flow".
In other words, I can visualise refactoring ob-lilypond to be no more than
a specification of the Lilypond syntax, and working in parallel, on a 
work-flow implementation for Lilypond that is "opinionated" in terms of 
adjusting org-babel settings away from their defaults / removing work-flow 
noise etc. ( org-lilypond.el ) ? Would this make sense, and if so where would 
it live (aligned to org-babel / a native Emacs mode perhaps)? 
I hope that makes sense.
