Thanks for bringing  that to attention, Harm. I believe my last email
didn't went through, so I'll write again.

David, I also sent a l little bit of money. I, too, wish I could send more,
but I'm not exactly wealthy, working on a shitty job in third world
country... You say you cannot deliver much value, but I believe we are the
ones in debt with you. You seem to be one of the more knowledgeable persons
here when it comes to the Lilypond code and Scheme. I don't follow the
commits of the Lilypond development, but I'm sure you made a lot of
worthwhile contributions in the past. Besides, helping a person in need
should be reason enough.
