Heh, I know exactly has that feels. :(
When Lilypond was on version 1.5.x, I could maintain a "stable lily deb"
and an "unstable lily deb" -- I made CVS using "make deb", and then I
could install the CVS version (when I was working on doc patches) or the
stable version (when I needed to compose). Unfortunately, "make deb"
doesn't work when lily CVS requires guile1.6, and guile1.6 isn't in
debian yet. (apparently it's supposed to come soon; it's a tricky thing
Anyway, I can't see any solution in the immediate future, but hopefully
