Interestingly, no.  There aren't any Polish operas or famous
`classical' songs I'm aware of.
?!  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_"?
And someone might want to typeset Polish (or Russian, or Japanese ... ) translations of Bach chorales for their choir. Of course it is ambitious, but I'd agree that conceptually LilyPond should be able to typeset in any language. Which would definitely be an argument for finding existing fonts rather than creating new ones.
