Recruit somebody from -user to handle it?

Alternately, you could have a look at the java code that runs LSR
and prepare a patch which adds this capability to it.  I think
it'll be far less work just to recruit one or two people from
-user, teach them enough to do this task, then let them handle it.

Yep.  To warn you: at the moment the "quick start" section of the
CG is broken; following its instructions will give you neither a
quick nor painless start.

Your options are:
1) go through the painful process of figuring out which parts are
still valid and which are not.  Without a mentor, this will be
especially painful.
2) wait for lilydev to be updated (ETA: 6 weeks) and somebody to
fix up at least the short "quick start" section (ETA: 1 month
after lilydev is updated).
3) ask/wait for somebody else to handle the LSR import.

Unfortunately there is no magic wand that will let us offer you an
option other than those three.  (unless I've forgotten about
something, which is possible given my mental state these days.
James: I have not forgotten about your recent work on lilydev, but
I stand behind my pessimistic estimate)
