That is very exciting.  I wrote a graduate paper integrating LilyPond and 
Gregorio with a LaTeX document, and it was very rewarding.  The most beautiful 
document I've written (visually, that is).  I look forward to reading this 
paper. (Provided it will be in English; if not, I'll have my priests translate 
it ;)
