Hi Andrew,
     This looks great to me- I like seeing Lilypond compared to several 
other editions of the same piece at the end.
     I just have one comment about the following:

Your benchmarking method currently takes the default output and compares it to 
classic engravings.  But this means you're considering things 
like the "Patterson Beams" plugin in Finale a tweak; yet it is an 
automated tool that takes two or three mouse-clicks and is a standard part 
of the engraving process for any serious Finale user.

Also, I really think it would be helpful to additionally show fully 
tweaked versions of both the Finale and Lilypond scores, to give an idea 
of the techniques/time necessary to get optimal output in both pieces of 
software.  I think I can get a copyist to do this on the Finale 
side if you're interested.
