I agree, that would be awesome.  Although a slightly more
plausible thing would be to isolate specific works.  For example,

1. Bach cello unaccompanied suite no. 1.  (single staff, a bit of
polyphony but not much, etc)
2. (all?) Bach chorales.  (multiple staves, lyrics)
3. Mozart symphony 40.  (many instruments, but relatively easy
4. Beethoven piano concerto no. X.  (many instruments, more
challenging notation)
x. Tchaik. violin concert (already in mutopia, but would require
updating and of course bug-fixing in lilypond to produce great
output with no tweaks)

However, that would be a huge understaking, and I don't think we
have enough programmer interest or funds.  (we could probably
organize a user effort to write the .ly files, though)
