Cool!  Thanks for taking over maintainership :)

Historical reasons I assume.  It doesn't actually matter as long as the
directory has no influence on setup categorizing.  If you like I move
it out of X11.

Other than that, the package has two packaging bugs.  The paths are
stored in the tar file with leading "./", which confuses setup.exe.
Also, the executables in usr/bin don't have a .exe suffix.

!!! I just found that the new lilypond package has the "./" bug as well.
    I removed the package from for now.  Can you please
    provide new packages?  Thanks.
