Why not. The syntax-file was done in such manner that it would allow
changes to the syntax during the time passing.

As described in

there are two local files to be created. First create local directories

mkdir -p ~/.vim/syntax/

Then file ~/.vim/filetype.vim

" my filetype file
if exists("did_load_filetypes")
augroup filetypedetect
  au! BufRead,BufNewFile  *.ly          setfiletype lilypond

And finally file ~/.vim/syntax/lilypond.vim


The following line should point to some file in http-cvs (if the file will
be added to cvs):
" Latest:

These lines should be removed:
" Notes:        Place this to, e.g., /usr/share/vim/syntax/lilypond.vim and
"               add corresponding line to, e.g., /usr/local/vim/filetypes.vim.

The mode was constructed in the spirit of other syntax-files. I thought
that my earlier mail could be a patch. The notes above how to apply the
mode as a user could be included to the documentation (slightly modified).

I have used vim for two weeks. Earlier I ignored it because I could not
even exit from it (go through vimtutor to know). I can already see some
connection between people who like to see a graphical interface without a
mouse, and the users of vim.
