We'll leave the TeX output intact, but users will have to write their
own glue/titling code (or use lilypond-book).

In a far future, I hope that we can link Lily to Pango or Omega so
that we can "outsource" text typesetting. Unfortunately, Pango doesn't
do print. I'm not sure where Omega is standing, last time I looked,
development wasn't moving much.
