Of course.  They give me money to enable me spending time on LilyPond
instead of doing some other summertime job.  The lucky thing is that
my costs of living are currently quite low (since i'm living with
parents, and outside of Euro zone).  Thus, some/a lot of [1] money
will remain - kind of a bonus.  Since there are loads of things that i
need in Lily, and i cannot code them all myself, i think i'll pay
someone to do them :)


[1] depending on how much tax i'll have to pay
