The main problems are:

What about bundling, say, FluidSynth and the soundfont from MuseScore so that MIDI playback would work "out of the box" as it does in the Windows version of Frescobaldi?

Or just communicating with the QuickTime synthesizer directly?

For that matter, I also think the latest stable version of LilyPond itself should be included. For the majority of potential Frescobaldi users, getting comfortable with LilyPond is the biggest barrier to entry. It would be better if there were not additional barriers on top of that.

That may not be a bad idea.  But then how would you handle Lilypond upgrades?
