I'd like that attitude change.  Lilypond is not -that- hard to compile
-- it's easier than Mozilla, easier than GNOME, easier than TeX itself.
The dependencies are not well documented in the docs, but the recipe
itself isn't too hard (I have it in .spec form for making RPMs for the
PLD distribution) -- once you get the prerequisites, the rest fairly
flies, especially if you're ignoring packaging issues.

I'd rather have docs on how to make it work right, rather than saying
"don't try".  That way, you'll get comments on how to improve it.
