There is no 'army of programmers' who 'work for Lilypond' — there is only a 
pool of users, some of whom are more technically savvy and motivated than 
others. And most of those people (users and developers) use Lilypond for its 
original purpose: to engrave music of the "European common practice period" 
(say, pre-1900).

Those of us who want "modern" notation need to step up and contribute the code 
ourselves, or (less likely) convince one of the existing developers of its 

Hope that helps!
