keep LilyPond process running in sort of "server mode"

some time ago there has been some discussion about a way to run LilyPond
once and keep it running, waiting for a filename to compile. I think it
was a special .ly file containing Scheme code that was started and ran all
the init stuff, then waited for the name of a .ly file to process (via a
socket, pipe or stdin, don't remember).

After processing the file, the process would remain running and waiting
for another filename to process. Just like specifying multiple files on
the lilypond command line, all init files are read only once. This could
speed up repeated compiles of LilyPond files inside (e.g.) Frescobaldi.

Does anybody know more about this? (LSR currently does not respond)

With TIA,
Wilbert Berendsen
