I doubt that it's necessary. The sound generated by Lilypond sounds pretty
machine-like, as it is. Jazz phrasing won't make it more humane.

That depends on the tempo. The faster you play, the straighter they are. On
slow blues, I even sometimes find myself exaggerating the triplet. On M.M.
250 or 300 however, it's almost entirely straight.
