Not to discourage this whole endeavor, but this can be kind-of
done already -- you use the last binary rather than compiling
lilyond from source, but as long as there's no syntax updates, it
works just fine.  I've done this for years (yes, even during
GDP!), and Trevor still does this.
Sort of.  I never actually compile the whole documentation.

Ah, sorry.

All I need to do is to check that any edits I make are not
going to break compilation, so all I need is to pass
the single file I've just edited through lilypond-book,
run a simple script to check refs, and then run texi2html
so I can check the formatting and appearance in a browser.
I have a script to do this and it usually works fine.  It's
far quicker than building the whole set of documents - typically 10-30 secs depending on the number of examples and snippets to be compiled.

Does this still compile the lilypond examples?  That would take
take much longer than 10-30 seconds.  If there's a way to generate
the docs without compiling lilypond examples (i.e. just show the
verbatim code, without actually generating the images), that would
be awesome.  99% of doc updates don't need to be image-checked, so
that could save me/whoever a lot of time.  :)

I'm able to copy to different location and compile certain files by themselves as long as they don't require a bunch of @include files. They compile very quickly this way. I wonder if it might help to define some new Make targets. For example "make lilypond-learning.pdf" would only compile the LM, and I would assume save quite a bit of time in compiling over "make doc".
