Please Brett... Let Midi and Postscript away for a moment...
Did you ever made a copy or a change score for playing that can be a little similar to the original from Schott, Henle, BMG, Suvini Zerboni, or other printed score?

I desire an open source tool, really!!

But for the moment, googling scores edited by lilypond, I'ven't found anything really good... and a lot of time to typesetting it...

Sometime I have to change details in some scores and send it to my friend: with finale I do it in few minute... Most of professional instrument players don't need any MIDI playback... they know very well how the score plays..

I hope you can understand my sadness...
