Err... by "run GUB", I mean "generate sheet music using the
downloaded .exe".  Even if somebody can't do anything else, with
this they can still contribute a great deal -- creating examples,
sorting/extending LSR stuff, etc.

Frankly, in some ways I wish that we had *more* contributors who
could only run GUB.  There's a lot of tasks that I consider "too
simple" for the git-savvy people to do, so as a result they tend
to remain undone.  :|

Err, if the version number in snippet matters, then you *have*
been compiling with GUB.  In the "compile docs without examples",
I meant something like

- replace @lilypond[...] with @example
- replace @end lilypond with @end example
- compile docs with texi2html, without lilypond-book.
