Maybe for the most basic applications without dependencies because even
linking with libc will be tricky. For LilyPond, we're talking quite a
number of dependencies where some (for example glib2) link against
macOS frameworks. How would that ever work?

Feel free to prove me wrong, but that requires some code demonstration
- repeatedly making the same claim whenever the discussion comes up
doesn't bring us forward.
