I haven't pulled out all the fonts yet to see how big they are, but I'm
uncomfortable with referencing a blob in a given commit on the repo.

I'd be happier if it were referencing a blob in master.

If it's not too big, I'd be even happier if we could just do a shallow
clone of the git repo, so the command would never need to change. And we
would used git to manage the download, which is what we were using

Having said all that, I'm fine with what you propose, if none of my other
ideas are workable.

Oh, and by the way, I'm not sure how to handle this, since strictly
speaking LilyDev is a separate product from LilyPond, and we don't host
LilyDev as part of the LilyPond repository.  So somehow this patch needs
to be coordinated with Federico, rather than using the standard LilyPond
patch sequence.
