Most of the scores appear to have been made with Finale, but the
Gutenberg guys are aware of the problem of proprietary file formats. 
They now include copies of the music in MusicXML.
(they've got a nice list of string quartets available -- I think I'll
have to start testing LilyPond's xml2ly converter!  :)

I can name three major Free sheet music sites off the top of my head*,
and PG isn't one of them.  (the chorale public domain library, Werner
Icking's (memorial) archive, and mutopia)  It would be nice to have a
one-stop archive, but I don't see that happening in the near future. 
Maybe somebody could make a meta-site, that includes the index and
allows you to search for pieces in all the other Free sheet music
sites... but until that happens, we'll need to search multiple sites.

* and many more after a few minutes of googling and browsing.
