I tried to organize that during GDP.  Nobody was interested.  I
tried to get somebody to look into a few technical questions over
the summer:
but nobody was interested.

Granted, that last email isn't terribly encouraging, but I stand
by the main points:
1. somebody needs to do some research
2. nothing is happening until 2.14 is out

That's the easiest part.  One person takes responsibility as the
ly/ maintainer (or ly/hacks/, if you prefer), and *they* decide.
Or, given our collective disinterest in taking on
responsibilities, maybe that's the hardest part.  :|

Like so many ideas that people have for lilypond, it's a nice
idea.  It's such a nice idea that multiple people have had it
years previously.  Our problem is not a lack of nice ideas.  The
problem is people willing to work on those ideas.

There's a bunch of areas where we suffer from a lack of
organization, of course, but we have a plan for sorting those out,
and in six months or so they should all be settled.  Our main
problem is that we have too many ideas and not enough work being
done to implement those ideas.  In army terms, we need "boots on
the ground".
