I use them via lilypond-book.  What I do is, in the lilypond I say:

a4 b2^"(1)"

and then in the lilypond-book file, I say:

\footnotetext[1]{ The B natural is a quarter note in the original }

Not as automagic as one would wish, but it comes out looking pretty
good.

In the ABC, I have the footnote text as an N: field, which abc2ly
translates into a footnotes header, so I've always assumed that one
could  use them in the lilypond, but for me it was easier to write a
script that turns the N: fields into latex \footnotetext lines.
Especially since there are lots of good reasons for using
lilypond-book for the stuff I do.
