Seems like a silly idea since there are officially supported installers
available for these programs. Also, if someone has spent half an hour
downloading a Lilypond-specific MikTeX  version over a modem line and 
later wants to use MikTeX for other TeX:ing, he'd want the official
MiKTeX anyway.

The Lilypond installer shouldn't have to write anything in the 
registry, right?
