Ok, maybe spend an hour or two and see what you come up with.

Agreed about git.  Not certain about music notation; there's a lot
of good work that somebody can do even if they have difficulty
finding FACE on a treble cleff.  OTOH, it might be nice
"advertising" for us -- it would make lilypond "stand out" in the
list of project requirements.

I'm very uncertain about listing C++.  There's a ton of stuff that
people can do with scheme only.  If anything, we might want to
list scheme... but then again, there's a lot of things that can be
done without scheme.

ok, but the application definitely shouldn't say that previous
experience with lilypond is required.
