Are you wondering what my lily2image project is about?  Well,

1) me learning how to script (biggest reason of all, probably, since this started out only as something I was going to use myself and evolved into something much more complicated)

2) creating musical examples (by which I mean images of music notation to insert in a document or web page) from lilypond source that are cropped properly (lilypond with png output does full pages)

3) being able to choose from variety of image output formats at the same moment as calling lilypond rather than having to convert them later;

4) being able to specify parameters with easy-to-remember flags instead of long options I have to look up in the documentation every time.

I suppose you could say it's a reinvention of the wheel, but this wheel rides more smoothly for me :)

I'm just missing an idea what this project should be all about... ;-)
