If I can understand the hyphenation problem (of course you can solve this in
both LaTeX and LyX by entering the hyphenated word if they are not too many,
and the WYSIWYG is of zero help here), I can't understand which is "the
same" with Lily. Are you talking about plain layout? Perhaps the "errors"
you are talking about are easier to spot witha a WYSIWYG tool, and easier to
fix. But they can be ten times less common in Lilypond, and once
conveniently fixed, maybe 90% of them would not come back again next time
you change the layout.
Hope I understood your point.
