Some “computer languages” are fairly stable. A TeX or C++ program

modifications (notwithstanding the g++ 4.3 header and namespace
changes). The same is not true of LilyPond; even after using
convert-ly, there are still bits that require manual updating.

As another example, I regularly use scientific Fortran codes that are 30 or 40 years old and have been made available as Python modules. Stability is certainly a good thing so long as it doesn't prevent genuine improvements in LilyPond.
