I'm not saying that you shouldn't upload it (even though it kind of
feels like a third party package right now). Besides how often do you
expect rebuilds for each release? That's hopefully one binary package
per LilyPond release, right?

No, it works:
And unless proven wrong, I think this will also work for macOS (given a
few tweaks).

There hasn't been a thread on lilypond-devel about this yet because I'm
waiting for 2.21.0 which we'll do with GUB.
