Integrating Scheme in LilyPond

The second challenge is the integration of Scheme as an extension language in LilyPond input files. Actually this works quite smoothly because LilyPond's language itself is parsed in a way that is very close to Scheme. But on the other hand this affinity can be confusing to the user. I will give particular emphasis on disentangling these things by discussing Scheme always from the perspective of a LilyPond user. After the general Scheme bookpart I will cover the integration of Scheme in LilyPond in more depth, in a bookpart dedicated to the integration of Scheme in LilyPond.
