Nice to hear that.  I like Debian too.

Yes.  That's why I try to advocate Debian a bit, at times.  I wish
more newbies/people with constant compilation problems woulrd try it.
It has all imaginable software, everything works, most things have
sane defaults, defaults don't get trashed in upgrades etc.  But best
of all is the LilyPond install.

You most probably won't see new versions in Woody, but you'll have to
ask Anthony.  In the mean time, you can try adding

    deb woody .

to your /etc/apt/sources.list, and get an unofficial 1.6 from there.

Utterly painless.  And in case it's not, file a bug report against the
LilyPond package.
