10.4 and 10.3: broken lilypond-book and convert-ly.  The broken
convert-ly is particularly unfortunate given the syntax changes between
2.10 and 2.12.

These Python scripts require Python 2.4, which is not provided in 10.3
and 10.4; ideally we should cross-compile Python and ship it in GUB
binaries, but it could be a nightmare to make it possible (I cannot even
compile current GUB right now, so I'm far from being able to do this
within one or 2 weeks).

can someone refresh my mind?  I'm generally against catering for
broken/old  platforms, but maybe we can make an exception for
convert-ly ; what broke for python 2.4 ?

"This is a known issue: Python scripts provided with LilyPond officially
require Python 2.4 or newer, but MacOS X Tiger only provides 2.3.  In
this case, convert-ly conversion rules have been rewritten using
decorator syntax rules during 2.11 development, which Python 2.3 doesn't
