Doesn't Rosegarden (or any other sequencer) export MIDI?  If you
export the separate parts as MIDI, midi2ly will have an easier job.

To be honest, I have never had much interest in midi2ly, and Jan seems
to have lost his taste for it, but there is much room for improvement
in midi2ly.

Or, another option, someone could reverse engineer .enc format.  It's
a pity that the format is binary, that makes a little harder to
scrutinize. In the end, ETF (finale format) wasn't so difficult. You
only have to have a place to start with.
