Yes it wold be very useful if lilypond could output lilypond source
code. For instance suppose you wanted one part to imitate another part
except for the odd note here or there. You could use a variable to store
the first part and use \transpose to get the second. If lilypond could
then output the transposed second part (without the \transpose, of
course) you could change these notes few by hand.
