The conversion rules written with decorator syntax.  It's certainly a
lot easier and faster to revert this change and write the syntax rules
added after this change than shipping Python 2.4 with Darwin-PPC
binaries -- please correct me if I'm wrong.  Are you OK with these
changes on convert-ly?

lilypond-book still won't work out of the box on Mac OS 10.3 or .4, but
it's required Python 2.4 for ages and most lilypond-book users use LaTeX
too, so I guess they're already used to install Python 2.4 or 2.5
themselves, or they wouldn't be afraid of doing so.
