I don't imagine this will be auto-generated any more than the music
glossary is. For "smob", a link to the guile manual would suffice for
the time being. "callback" needs to be explained in LilyPond terms;
there's a good start in NR 1.6.6 "Scheme procedures as properties".

I imagine this will be a team effort over time. Probably best to 
start with "stubs" and gradually flesh them out.
