Maybe I'm missing something then - or maybe we're talking about
different things. :) What I'm really referring to is the file
associations windows allows you to have and that cause a specific
program to be invoked when you double-click on a file icon. I do have
one for .ly files; having to manually set an environment variable
seems counter-intuitive, especially for less technically-inclined
users who want things to "just work". I think Lilypond should just
look up the relevant association and launch the specified program.
