I use midi2ly occasionally.  I agree that it's often, or even usually,
faster to type the notes, but when I'm short on proofreading time and I
have a MIDI I trust, I sometimes decide it's safer.

Gov'r. Thomas was so pleas'd with the construction of this stove, as
described in it, that he offered to give me a patent for the sole
vending of them for a term of years; but I declin'd it from a
principle which has ever weighed with me on such occasions, viz.,
That, as we enjoy great advantages from the inventions of others, we
should be glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of
ours; and this we should do freely and generously.
