While specific medieval and renaissance music notational items are
obvious features for lily (I might want to use them myself some day) I
don't argue for adding graphic notational features since the scope of
lilypond, as I recognize it, is clearly 'conventional' music fitting
into well defined pitch- and duration patterns.

all I did was to respond to discussion themes raised by other
subscribers previously and in the current thread concerning the
suitability of Lilypond for typesetting 'unconventional' contemporary
music. If you have been assigned the rights to personally define legal
discussion themes concerning lilypond I'll of course have to take note
of that and then possibly unsubscribe from the list.
