What I would see as a better project (and what I intend to suggest for
the list) is developing a system of automated testing and documentation
generation for openLilyLib, both the snippets repo and the other,
"new-style", packages. This would actually bring openLilyLib a huge step
forward to be usable on a broader base.

I think having openlilylib in a state where it’s reliable, easy to use and gets adopted more generally would be a huge step forward for all of LilyPond. I’m thinking (as I’m certain you are, too) of something comparable to the package system of the TeX universe, which offers a great possibility to provide facilities for very different use cases without blowing up the core program, while still having them readily available, documented and comfortable to maintain.
So don’t be too uneasy about bringing openLilyLib up here, I think.

Best, Simon
