Yes.  That said, if Phil is willing/interested in working a
full-time job on lilypond for 3 months over the summer (IIRC -- it
may be 4 or 2 months instead), then he's earned that money and can

Yes.  I'm confident that we prove more mentoring than at least 90%
of the projects that get a GSoC.  I'm not certain how they'd view

David); rather, we should ask if this is the kind of thing that we
want to spend time on.
