Hi Karlin,

I'd like to adress this question from my own point of view.

I think we have only two possibilities: migrate to guilev2 or fork guilev1

Actually some distros provide lilypond with guilev2 already, applying
patches from the 'guile-v2-work'-branch.
The result is insufficient, to say the least.
So we should continue migrating-work.

But that does not exclude the possibility of our own guilev1-fork. All
patches in master dealing with incompatible guile-versions have a

So the two possibilities condens to: migrate to guilev2, but don't
make guilev1 impossible.

Over the years some people worked on the topic - speaking only for
myself, I think all low hanging fruits are done.
So I'm running out of knowledge to continue work and I don't have the
time to do the needed lessons to get that knowledge...
