I don't think we want to put this in the main body of the Learning Manual,
since we ask readers to read the LM cover to cover.  I think that having it
as an appendix is the right thing to do.  But I like the name Programming
inside LilyPond much better than Scheme tutorial.

index.html is the default page for a website.  Hence, we wanted LilyPond

I like the division of stuff into chapters.  Looks good!

I think there should be at least a pointer to OooLilyPond in Usage 3.2.,

I do have a minor nit to pick: on the Manuals page, the regular use section
is ordered Notation, Snippets, Usage, but the menu bar is ordered Notation,
Snippets, Usage.  All the rest are in order.

Thanks for your great work!
