No.  LilyPond is a command-line "compiler".  That's something that
would happen in an alternate program.

Consideration will be given to overall compile speed, but that's
it.  A really intelligent editor could only update sections of the
score at once (via the clip or skipMeasures functionality), but
again that's back to "alternate program" territory.
