Thanks. It took me quite some time (and it probably will take even
more very soon), and it was a bit of a setback that Jerome had to quit
at this moment. We're gearing up for LilyPond 1.6, and I had hoped to
drop all silly customized stuff we have at lilypond.org, and try to
submit LilyPond for inclusion into Cygwin.

That's grand. Really! How could I have missed that announcement. Of
course I'll drop instructions for the Windows version. This is the
biggest problem with Lily users on Windows (Cygwin -- users on Cygwin
I mean). Sometimes it seems that they have the only operating system
ever, that doesn't come with a PostScript viewer.

Sure. I've been working on -3 which has some little improvements, but
I'll wait a while and gather more info before making a new release;
it's so big.

Ah, just an tetex-x11 package with *xdvi and mfw. That makes some
sense. Should it depend on Xlibs? How do we handle dependencies
between X and Cygwin?

That was my intention (didn't the mail say so?), but there are some
small things that need to be OK'ed by cygwin-apps:
* transition and package names
Of course, I don't want to delay getting a version into testing much
longer than necessary.
