I finished my midterms and am working on my GSOC application. Please let me
know if I've grasped this right:

If I understand correctly, export involves converting natural lilypond
scheme data into SXML so we can use Guile to reduce the problem of XML
conversion. And for import, it's the same way but backwards. In contrast to
Frescobaldi's lilypond syntax parser, this would convert straight from
lilypond to xml.
Finally, this project benefits Lilypond because it facilitates translation
to and from other music engraving software, which is fantastic. 

Beyond that, I have a few questions: 

What are the advantages of the Guile method over Frescobaldi's enhanced

What part of MusicXML conversion is best contained for a summer's project?
Is it realistic to believe I can complete both import and export in three

Who would be my mentor in this case? What do you suggest as a goal for
midterm-achievement and how should I best split up the task? Could we Skype? 

Thanks for all the help,
