I've seen reviews of LilyPond lambasting it because clicking the
application does nothing.

LilyPad helps against that but I am not sure whether we'll entertain
people's attention span long enough to actually become a user of
LilyPond when this was a roadblock.  If I remember correctly,
Frescobaldi can download and install official LilyPond versions.  If
that's also the case in MacOSX, that would be a strong reason to try
providing a no-GUI LilyPond installation for Darwin.
