As one can see in
<URL:>, LilyPond
plugins are not considered safe to use in Wikimedia because of Denial of
Service concerns.

However, a sizable number of contributors could likely be expected to
actually run LilyPond on their own computer.  So can anybody more
familiar with HTML and browser technologies figure out what would be
required to create, say, a Firefox browser plugin that will submit
content structured as SVG plus source code leading to essentially the
same results?  If the music processes were run on the system of the
contributor, the DoS concerns would be addressed.
