I know that; if he did, I'd have been pestering him about this once a
week, the past four years.  This is just my yearly request.

FWIW, I'm not doing LilyPond development for a living.

I can imagine that.  Dave was spot-on in his first listing of LilyPond
seven years ago.  But we've been working the living daylight out of
our lives, the past eight years, and that why I send a yearly please
update note.

Ok, I suggest this new entry with catchline straight from
http://linuxmusician.com, with list of items.  Here we go, (html
