I agree.  :(

If you really want to poke the hornet's nest, and if the scheme
implementation can be used for any arbitrary lilypond file (i.e.
just by adding an \include "" to the top), then we
could ask on the lilypond-user mailing list.

Since we'll be having a release candidate as soon as Mike fixes
his python 2.4 problem in, I'd ask you to wait
until 2.16 is out before pushing this change.  That's the only
real feedback I can give, sorry.
