If I were primarily a salesman instead of a developer, I would not be
starving.  You'll find lots of people ready to help with problems you
encounter, and most importantly _able_ to help with problems you
encounter because you can easily exchange and discuss fragments of
LilyPond input on the mailing lists.  But organizing piano music still
is a more troublesome application in the vast scope of music LilyPond
will handle.
