But we *don't* have "a licensing situation" on a file-by-file

[1] it would be very useful if somebody could create an example to
replace, since that's non-free.

What about keeping Trevor's work under a CC-BY-ND license, in case he
agrees with this?  If anybody wants to reuse code for any purpose other
than quoting the music itself, it will lead to a different enough work
so you can consider it can't be a derived work.  About other snippets,
are you sure there is no other Mutopia snippet in the public domain or
under some license other than FDL (say, CC) in the source tree?
On the opposite, note that snippets from LSR are public domain, not FDL.


The snippets are not public domain, unless the author put them there. The *music* may be public domain, but the *arrangement* is copyright whoever wrote the lilypond code (unless you make the argument that the snippet is too small to qualify for copyright).
