?!  How are we supposed to typeset Frédéric Chopin's songs written to
polish lyrics, then?  Or Moniuszko's operas?

As a Pole i feel seriously discriminated - after all, isn't LilyPond
supposed to provide "music notation for _everyone_"?
It seems as if you thought that polish people don't write their own music...
Of course i'm sure that it wasn't your intention to offend me, Werner,
but nevertheless i feel quite disregarded. :-/

best wishes,

PS unfortunately i still don't have time to return to lily
development... i'm just reading this thread because Urs mentioned this
idea to me.
