Hi Carl,

OK, here's what i put on my key:
-LilyPond (in case it's not installed)
-Sun's JRE (I don't why, nobody seems to have it installed)
-jEdit installer
-SumatraPDF reader (most computers have Adobe installed, but that's
just a matter of preference ;)

That's still a bit complex, and a bit intrusive. (particularly the
JRE, which adds unnecessary things to the boot sequence, etc).

I fully agree; the result would be much better.
However, I might be idealistic but I think syntax-colored lilypad
would make LilyPond look much nicer. Most users don't even read the
LilyPad default text when they open it; they just think it's another
boring ReadMe, and close it. How many times do we see users asking:
"I've downloaded LilyPond, but when I click on it nothing happens".
It's all about the first impression ;)

Anyway, that's not my original question; I do understand you (or
anyone else) don't want to spend any time on it; I'm okay with it. I
just wanted to know where to find LilyPad sources, out of curiosity,
and in case I could propose anything concrete.
