Currently it seems I'm the only one being able to test Antonio's patches.

This is not exactly optimal.

I 'm always running short of time, so I _only_ test, meaning I've not
the time to think about "what's done", "why", "what are the
consequences", etc. Sometimes I test even without having a look _what_
I'm testing :(
I hope I can give him some feedback, but more people participating is
surely preferable.

Having a LilyDev with guile 2.0.12/13 may help.

So, I pretty much desire a guile2.10.12/13-LilyDev

Antonios container-script may help as well, but I think more people
are familiar with our LilyDev already.
