I just want to be able to make video scores like your latest example!

Of course, having the features based on modifying important source code 
and unaligned with possible directions of future development is far from 
ideal. It's hard to see that these efforts will age well in their 
current state. But visual aids like video scores are valuable when 
teaching complex choral works to groups that haven't had much experience 
with that sort of music. I'm excited to see that it's possible to make 
them in LilyPond. Go, Knut!
