be contributed to LilyPond.  That we don't collect formal statements and
don't collect copyright assignments does not mean that everybody is free
to grab code "off the net" and put it into LilyPond.

For example, if someone posts code to the LilyPond user list and asks
whether this is how it should be done, that does not imply that he is
willing to see this code end up in our code base.
