Hi All,

I am new to lilypond dev. work. My intention may be naive, but I am wanting
to do the work to uplift gub and lilypond to python 3. Am I premature, or
foolish, or misguided? I did have some encouraging email about this
previously, but I just wanted to check before I dive in and spend large
amounts of time, especially re GUB.
