Ah, too bad.

Yes, that would be good.  With LilyPond, documentation comes in info
and html, as will often be the case for documentation in texinfo
source.  It would be a real waste of disk space to duplicate all those

Currently, we have a script that inserts the pictures, for tex and for
html, like so:

    \input lilyponddefs
    \input lily-163291676.tex
    @end tex
    <a href="lily-163291676.png">
    <img border=0 src="lily-163291676.png" alt="[picture of music]">
    @end html

It would be nice if a new type of @image command would create both
sane html and info output.

No.  Any idea how tricky this would be to implement, do you know
something about Emacs 21's image display?
