I think changing the LilyPond parser to support BOM in the middle (ie not at the beginning) of the file is very hard. Actually if it is not at the beginning, then it should be treated as a regular character, which might not be present just anywhere in the file.

And no PDF.  Attached for your convenience. Comments?

Following[1], one could well handle it as a ZWNBSP. I
mean, BOM is there for a reason, and if it is supported, that should
make lily to behave smartly. Instead, lily seems to behave more as a
dumb, stopping completely by a minor issue.
