Without knowing much about how lilypond-book works, I tried to use it today. I 
found that the documentation is not so good for me. I am pretty new to LaTeX.

It would be a lot easier if the documentation was supplemented with at least 
two "mini-tutorials"; one for latex integration and one for texi integration. 
Each mini-tutorial wouldn't need to contain much more than just one small but 
complete input file, the necessary commands to compile it, and a picture of 
the output. (just extending the existing examples to "mini-tutorials" would 
be enough)

One example of what's not mentioned in the manual, is which file extensions to 
use. Apparently lilypond-book acts differently depending on input file 
extensions; e.g. .tely seems to make texi output default.

There might exist a part of the manual that I haven't read, and which contains 
all this info. In this case there should IMHO exist a link there from
